You have all heard them before, just when you think your winning the argument or debate, along comes that classic line, too try and end the conversation. I haven’t posted much, but I have read a lot here on ATS and some lines just really crack me up.

I’m looking for those classic recurring lines that we’ve all encountered at one time or another, that are humorous, although sometimes they can sound deadly serious lol
. They can be lines you’ve encountered in your time here at ATS or in real life.

I will go first...this is one of my all time favorites…


There are other threads on that subject, go and discuss them there

Usually at the start of an ATS thread...

My favorite conversation stopper I use on telemarketers is

"What are you wearing"

I used to get lots of solicitation calls. Then I started treating them like 1 900 numbers..

Now nobody calls me.

Ha! That reminds me. They would ask for the "head of the household". I used to tell them my dad was in the backyard skinning my dog for the barbecue.

LOL that was good..

I originally got my idea on how to deal with solicitors from a radio show...

This person recorded his solicitor calls and played them for friends at parties.

The recorded call that made the radio show was a solicitor calling the guy and the guy pretended to be a Sheriff and told the solicitor that he had called a homicide crime scene.... Funny as all get out.


Another conversation stopper.

"ever had that not so fresh feeling?"

When I used to be a tattoo artist, and the person that I was tattooing
would begin to annoy me by talking to much, I would just simply
say "oop's" or "uh oh!", and that would kill the conversation real quick.

LOL

“What are you wearing”

That’s lies somewhere between random tangent deflector lol and pretty extreme and direct chat up line.


Depending on how enticing your voice is, that phrase might just spark off, a whole new friendship lol and keep the conversation flowing...perhaps lol

Well The first time I did it the lady on the other end started complaining alot claiming sexual harassment...Then I reminded her that she called me and how I spent my time on the call was my business...

When a guy called back later he hung up more quickly but he did laugh before he went.

LOL another one my sister used to use when she got one of those really argumentative customers on the phone that was hurling non stop abuse at her - arguing just for the sake of arguing - Sorry wrong answer - you are the WEAKEST LINK Goodbye

Whenever a telemarketer or a business would call me up for a survey or to try to get me to switch telephone companies, I'd just start repeating over and over until they hung up the following Spanish phrase: "No habla Anglais!" It certainly confused them enough.

Everyone usually leaves the mutter chatroom when I say

"Hello everyone, Scooby Doo's here"

Silence just follows
