  I dunno everyone's stance on telemarketers; personally, i just think that they're just trying to make a dollar [and i usually feel bad for them because everyone always hates them].

anyway, all that aside, got this off a friend and thought i'd share. it's a phone prank on an unsusppecting telemarketer.

  I know where you're coming from. They're just trying to make a buck and get by, usually on a low salary doing a crappy job.
Two times in my life I worked the phones at a job....and it really sucked. I try to remember that when I get them now and won't get nasty unless they refuse to hear my "No..I'm not interested".

A few years ago I put my phone number on the National No Call list, and also having caller ID showing on my phone has really cut down the number of telemarketing calls I pick up now.

  I will actually not even take the time to say I'm not intrested and just end the conversation...

Now I feel bad, but hey they are soooo annoying!

And ow, I did like the joke thing :)

  I feel bad that there is someone out there that has a really shitty job like telemarketing, but it doesn't change the fact that they irk the shit out of me.
I just hang up on them.
If they keep me on their call list, then I get rude with them.
If they still keep me on their call list, then I get obscene with them. Usually that does the trick.
I haven't had to threaten anyone for a long long time.

  Amen Billy.

I worked for a telemarketing company for three days in those day i saw more people take speed in an office than i'd ever seen do it in a club, i made my team leader cry because i refused to call anyone and she might lose her bonus and during my interview the manager chugged a can of booze.

Fucking cunts and no mistake

  I had a three minute conversation with a telemarketer once. It was such a riot, I actually adopted a whole new persona for the purposes of that one phone call. He was a nice enough guy too and I didn't have to hang up on him.

I don't hang up on telemarketers. I used to say, "Sir, I am in the middle of something, would you please hold for a sec?", then I just put the phone down and walked away.

It's a horrible job, some of them can be so annoying but I think most of them don't like what they do, but have to to make a living. I don't get mad or hate them. Thank God I have never had to work as a telemarketer.

  I enjoy keeping them on the line as long as possible and small talk them.

With pretty hilarious results sometimes.

Brilliant isn't it. The women can look at the baby kitty, the men can look at the bra-less breasts
