Funny things to do/say when telemarketers call
 
Interested to see what some of you have to say lol one I heard recently is give the phone to a young child and tell them its santa

Josh611 01-10-2013 12:50 PM

I don't answer the phone

CaptainBOHICA 01-10-2013 12:53 PM

jerk it while they try to pitch you and make it obvious that you are.

they'll never call you again.

I will turn the table and attempt to sell them something like Amway or Girl Scout Cookies for my daughter. It is quite effective. Try it some time.

Depends on what they are calling for?

I sometimes put the hadset on speaker phone, listen to the speech and then say "Can you go over it one more time?" something along those lines.

Usually those are to fundraisers who are looking for $$ for something I do not support.

The called once and asked for me and I yelled out "MOOOOOOOOOM..Is dad out f*&%ing his girlfriend?

Racist & sexist jokes and generally pissing the other guy/gal the f**k off is the best.

CaptainBOHICA 01-10-2013 12:59 PM

Talk to them in spanish, and lots of times they say they are going to transfer me to the spanish call center, right then i say "ok, thanks bro!" And hang up.

I pick up the phone and immediately try to sound like a cow in labor. I figured it would be scary sounding but both kids laugh so I guess it isn't frightening.

My mother in her infinite wisdom would always ramble on with them for 15-20 minutes, or until they hung up.

I personally rip into them, insult them and their families, call them corrupt communist pigs, and hang up the phone. They never call back.

Old Nap 01-10-2013 05:19 PM

Here's what I do. Very politely I ask them... "Is it OK if I say no?" or "Do you mind if I say no?" That way it puts it on them.

1. If they say Yes, which they usually do, then I say thanks and hang up.
2. If they say No, I say Really? That's not very nice! and I hang up.

Either way, I hang up without being rude.

I do this.

I usually walk into the bathroom, turn on the fan, turn the phone on speaker and proceed to make noises (or actively) to churn out a nice bowl painter. I haven't had anyone last over a minute or 2 for quite awhile. Before I moved into my house I had a guy play along enough that I made a comment about pooping a hemorrhoid with blood everywhere and proceeded to hang up.

XL5 01-10-2013 05:29 PM

I put them on speaker and keep doing whatever I was doing.

xbignick 01-10-2013 05:38 PM

I tell them I'm not interested and shut the phone because they have a job to do, and I do not want to waste their time just as I don't want them wasting mine.

migraine 01-10-2013 05:58 PM

I tell them to [SIZE="7"]SUCK IT !!!![/SIZE]

Nodie27 01-10-2013 06:08 PM

I stop them and say "I'll take whatever you're selling but I don't have a bank account or credit so you have to personally come pick up the money from me, but it has to be you and you HAVE to come alone."

Tom Mabe is hilarious. I think my favorite of his is the presidential fundraiser.

nabzy28 01-10-2013 08:06 PM

Way back, one called at where I was working. I remember getting a couple of the other guys to just start yelling and I told whoever it was that the damn alligator got out of it's cage and bit one of them on the leg... what should I do? They just hung up.

allabtsprt 01-10-2013 08:21 PM

I do one of 3 things, depending on what mood I'm in:

1.) Sometimes I just pick up the phone and lay it down without saying a word and come back in a few minutes and hang it up.

2.) Sometimes I pick the phone up, say "No thanks" before they get a word in and hang up.

3.) Sometimes I quietly listen to their spiel and when they are done I ask them for their home phone number so that I may call and bother them at all hours of the day. Works every time!

Kosmo Kards 01-10-2013 10:13 PM

I usually start speaking in tounges and start chanting really loudly. Works every time. On occasion I will use my cookie monster voice and that has worked for me as well.
