Tactical error

This conversation just happened:

Telehassler [with thick accent]: Hello, may I please speak with [my full name].

Me: Yes, speaking.

Telehassler: blah blah blah Mr. [last name] blah blah blah I should let you know, Mr. [last name], that this call is being recorded for quality control purposes.

Me [politely]: Oh, will they tell you that because I am female, you shouldn't refer to me as Mister?
