Apple Calls To Award Woman $10K, She Hangs Up

This is what telemarketers have done to us. When a stranger calls (you know that annoying voice that can’t pronounce your name) it’s usually a telemarketer trying to sell you something or take valuable time away from you because it serves you no purpose. So what happens on the odd chance that a stranger wants to give you something really cool?

By Athima Chansanchai

Conditioned to politely hang up on telemarketers, Gail Davis followed form recently, only to find out she had hung up on a legit Apple giveaway of a $10,000 iTunes gift card for downloading Apple’s App Store’s 10 billionth app early Saturday morning, a milestone our own Suzanne Choney wrote about over the weekend.

“I thought it was a prank call,” the UK-based Davis told CultofMac.com (Thanks Gizmodo for pointing us there.) She remembers saying, “Thank you very much, I’m not interested” and then she hung up. (She doesn’t even own an iPod that can run apps, but her daughters own iPod touches.)

Luckily for this mom, her two teenage daughters came scrambling downstairs to tell her that this was no prank and that she better call back! They had apps to buy, for god’s sake! (That last comment is from my own reenactment in my mind of this pivotal family moment.)
