Listen up?

We just got a pre-recorded solicitation call that began, "Listen up. If you've been in business...." whereupon I hung up. This is how they sell stuff? And who knows just what they were selling.

I completely understand your compulsion to hang up immediately, but I would like to know what company was responsible for it.

I suspect that "listen up" is popular with the same demographic that "hollers at" each other. That's fine for them, but it does translate as rude to me.
