When I answer the telephone, I'm not waiting through the silence any longer!

I'm with you on that. I've been hanging up on them for quite some time now.

It's so annoying but, at least it's a way to avoid talking to the telemarketers.

That was awesome.

Whenever I get the generic Viagra telemarketers I wind them up by telling them I do not need any because I have naked pictures of their mother and/or sister that do the trick for me.

This guy is brilliant, I like how he gets the telemarketer to say, ''i had no business with him'' and ''i don't even know the guy''. If someone wants a product, they should do the contacting. In my opinion, telemarketers have no business calling when they don't even know you.

I get those calls sometimes. I'll give them one hello if no answer I hang up, or if I feel like having fun I'll tell him that I'm busy and that if he/she will give me his or her home number I'll call him or her back after work which should be after eleven that night.

I kind of miss the olden days when computer-generated phone calls would be on VOX and record what you said for several minutes. I would usually go into my rendition of Nessun Dorma. I think that fixed things most of the time.

Its the machine its called an ets auto dialer.
And hey telemarketing has employed many of young and under educated people.
In my state of Ohio there used to be lots of those kinds of jobs mainly for home improvments

Yup. If I see the caller ID and its family or someone close I'll pick up the phone. Otherwise, they get the voicemail. I've been doing this even before caller ID was invented...

It's conditioning... Don't fall for it... There's probably all sorts of evil subliminal messages coming through in that silence.


Its also about control. If we answer first they are in control, but I launch into them with unadultrated working class language.

That's genius! (In all honesty, if I were a telemarketer I'd keep your number on file. 99% of the answered calls are probably people that hate their guts. So hearing the sweat voice of a 4 y/o would be a breath of fresh air.

If your kid happens to not be around, you should try my strategy. When my grandmother passed, I had her number move to my house. She was super social and I hated the idea of someone calling to check on her, getting an out of order message. Plus, the landline number I had at the time, was hardly ever used. As soon as I switched numbers the telemarketers, I got a solicitor called. I'm too nice to be rude so I had them say their pitch. then tell them my grandma wasn't home, she was visiting relatives for a few months. Then they'd, of course, try selling to me. Her phone was ringing so much with these calls. Eventually, I said "she's dead!" To one of them. Which got them off the phone real fast. So I now say whomever is asked for is also dead and "we really don't need these kind of calls at this time I our life." Theyve cut back so much since using that method.
