Latest telemarketers bullshit

When you ask them to stop calling you, "I'm sorry, I didn't hear you."

I finally hung up after repeating myself 3 times

2. It's to legally protect them.

If you tell them to stop, by law they have to.
Unless they didn't hear you of course.

3. It's the charitable ones that kill you.

I can't afford to donate to them, so I get to feel guilty 20 times a day.

I let my 3 year old granddaughter (I watch her during the day) answer the landline.

9. If you don't recognize the phone number why answer?

I never answer my phone unless I know who it is. If it's important they will leave me a message. I never answered my phone when I had a landline.

12. When you have spare time to kill.... (Entertainment value only)

When you have spare time to kill....
(Entertainment value only)
-----------------------------

How to answer spam phone calls...

Keep asking: What is your name?
... until you get an answer.

What is your company/org name?
... until you get an answer.

What is your company/org address?
... until you get an answer.

What is your company/org phone number?
... until you get an answer.

What number can I get in contact with you?
... until you get an answer.

So what if they lie?
You're just going to hang up on them anyway.
Even better if you say 'sorry, not interested'.
.
Their time is also important to them.

13. What i think I'm going to do

With one asshole who's been calling years asking for the lady of the house-

He was told twice to stop calling. He's still doing it.

When I answer with hello, and he/they start up. I'm going to start talking gibberish, like Latka on Taxi. Just pretend I don't speak English. Words like BACA! and inishkinar. I'll keep repeating nonsense. Then I'm going to place the phone by the TV and leave it.

I'm done being nice.
