    I just fuck with them. They wanna ring me, they gotta put up with my shit!

    You can always tell by the tentative way they ask 'uh, is that mr XX.' or other dead giveaways

    so tell them 'if your gonna try and sell me something, I'm gonna get really mad! I'm not in the mood!'. They'll always spin it round and try and tell you its an 'opportunity' or something, so then just start yelling 'Ooooh! oooh! you ARE trying to sell me something!!".... they'll crap on about opportunitys some more, so then start saying 'ooooh this is NOT happening!!' etc etc. Banging on walls. Muttering. Drop the phone handset on the floor. Sing a nursery rhyme in really wierd timing 'Mary HAD a...little...........LAMB!!!'.

    Whatever sounds nuts.

    When they hang up on YOU... you win the game! Congratulations, have a beer and relax!

    You know....If you have a little time in the evening then play with the fuckers. When one calls, sound like your really interested and keep them on the phone for a long time by asking really good questions about the product and so forth. Make it sound like your going to actually buy it then right at the last moment say..."Nah, Im not interested." That my friends really really pisses them off.

    Allright, here's what ya do. tell em you're dead.

    or........if it is someone from the opposite sex, hit on 'em. "hey, you sound hot...how big is your chest?"

    I actually got a telemarketer to hang up on me once.

    I don't get those calls very often, but when I do, it's ON. Just say things like, "Yeah I like paper clips and burritos." Or one of my favorites is, "Nope they ain't here right now, but I did find a dog turd in the back yard." That quote is soon followed by a "click" on their end. LOL. Rock on telemarketers. Out.

    My dad says, "Hold on a minute," then sets the phone down in front of the TV...until the telemarketer hangs up.

    But it's true, they ARE just doing their job.

    OK...by saying this, I may be reserving myself a one way flight to see FORD Part 2, but it just reminded me...

    I got a phone call one night and was NOT in the mood to talk to them. So what did I do?

    I pretended like I had a hearing deficiency and I was mildly retarded. [img]redface.gif[/img]

    The call lasted less than 25 seconds.

    Now before any of you start lambasting me, you all know you've wanted to something similar like this. I truly did feel bad about it, but unfortunately, I couldn't get the telemarketer's number to call him back and apologize.

    Other ways, less offensive ways, to disperse of telemarketers...

    -Pretend you have Teret's Syndrome.
    -Pretend you're narcoleptic (fall asleep uncontrollably)
    -Start singing children's songs in a high pitched voice.
    -Act like they caught you while you were in the restroom. If they persist, start making loud and boisterous, almost painful groans.

    They'll soon get the message.
