    Re: How to play with telemarketers

    as soon as they give me a second to answer them , i go into this great sales pitch on how much money i can save them if they sign up for 4 magazines at a savings of over 2 dollars per magazine. and that if they sign up now they can get the contract extended . i don't even give them a chance to say no , i just start asking what their interests are and start naming magazines that relate to those interests.

    1 guy was ready to sign up , i had to tell him 3 or 4 times that i don't sell magazines and i was just joking. another guy asked if i called him.

    and if they really persist i start in on trying to refinance there house.


    some times i ask if they can hold and set the phone next to the tv speaker, or just hand the phone to a friend and say it's for them. but mostly i let them listen to the answering machine that says " sorry due to excessive sales men calls we are no longer answering this phone , so if you want me to refinance my house subscribe to a magazine or anything else your selling chances are we're not interested , so do not call here anymore, and if it's any one else , leave a message and we'll call you back"

    thank god for cell phone plans that don't have any minutes!!!!! i just have every 1 call that number.

    Did anyone, besides me, take a moment to think that maybe some of our own members are telemarketers? :wink:

    I simply got on the State and Federal "No Call List" and now they CAN'T call me.

    Telemarketers suck. Next time just blare a really high pitched noise into the phone, they should hang up!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Perhaps it IS wrong, but it was more likely to get the name pulled off the list. (You also have to remember I was probably 18 or 19 when that happened).


    Either way, never said it was right.... sorry if it offended anybody.

    I got caller ID.. If the number that comes up is not one that I notice, I just don't answer the phone.. If they get lucky enough to have me answer the phone, I just say not interested please don't call back, and hang up..

    Re: How to play with telemarketers

    I normally just tell them I am not interested and hang up, but sometimes I like to have fun with them too.

    Now first you have to know a little about my home. I live in a all brick home and I have hardwood floors through out the house.

    I have had Kirby vacumm salesman and carpet cleaning services come out two or three times before they takeme off the list.

    I also have had vinyl siding reps out a few times.
