Jon are you serious about moving forward with a [marketing service I inquired about]? Are you wasting our time or did you have a serious need that we can help with.
Woah [redacted sales guy], hold on a second with the "wasting our time" bit. I thought when I filled out the get-a-quote form that I identified some of the things I was looking for.

That'll do it. Now is that serious enough or should I give my clients the quotes I have from your competitors plus my margin?
