Screw everything about this. They should just do a show all about"abuse a telemarketer" or even better "abuse a telemarketing executive" or even merely "abuse an executive".
They say she works in a call centre. Not all call centres are telemarketing companies. For instance, every time you call the number on your credit card, that's a call centre. I'm sure you can come up with more examples on your own.
I liked the part where they called an entire country with over 22 million people - dumb, drunk and racist.
My initial response was to the person who was calling Mahima a telemarketer and finding her proclamation of innocence to people telling her to fuck off infatuating.
That's an interesting contention - I have no idea whether it's true or not, do you have any particular insight or evidence comparing small towns in the US with the broader Australia?

I'm think I'm slightly infatuated with the innocence of any telemarketer who when, after peddling cell-phone plans over the phone uninvited, is amazed when someone tells them to "fuck off."

Key findings show:
- Rates of assault for Indian students were lower than or on par with rates for the general Australian population.
- Rates of robbery against Indian students were higher than average for Australians in larger states for most years.
- The proportion of robberies against Indian students occurring at commercial locations was approximately double that recorded for students from other countries.
- Over half of robberies against Indian students on commercial premises occurred at service stations.
Robbery is an opportunistic crime. The higher rates of robbery against Indian students, compared with other international students, and Australian comparison populations, appeared to be more likely to occur because of a range of factors: in particular, differences in employment, with large numbers of Indian students working in higher-risk employment (taxi driving and in convenience/fast food stores and service stations), working evening/night shifts and their use of public transport.
As the data did not include offender profiles, the AIC could not engage in specific analysis of racial motivation. The fact that assault rates on Indian students were either below or the same as the rates of assault for the general Australian community suggests that race is not a primary motivation.
What would a highbrow bogan tabloid be like?
Then I figured it would be more attractive as a plot element in this theoretical TV show that it should really be about the telemarketing executives, and, well, it was just too easy to expand that to most executives in all markers and sectors and how it would be the best TV reality TV show in the history and foreseeable future of reality TV shows and I got kind of carried away.
I've had a few conversations where people start complaining about immigrants, and when I point out that I myself am an immigrant, they'll invariably say something along the lines of "I don't mean people like you!" For most of these people, it isn't about jobs or housing or any of those things they like to claim it's about: it's about racism.
The YouTube link is now dead, pulled for nudity.
Well, Texas looks to be about the geographic size of New South Wales and so may be, eyeballing it, about one-sixth the size of Australia. That's pretty big.
