Ok, I'm sure everybody here gets calls from sales people. How do you handle these? There is a mean way, a polite way, and of course your own way. I tend to have my own way. I don't feel bad because I used to be a telemarketer, so I have taken my fair share of the "mean way." Believe it or not right after you yell or scream at one and hang up, they are cracking up on the other end of the phone with their buddy sitting next to them. Oops, that's a secret I'm not supposed to let out.. lol! In all seriousness though, telemarketers don't care if you hang up on them. They just want to meet their quota for the hour. They are just doing their job people!! However, their job interferes with our lives, and we are sick of it! (Can I get a Hoo-Ha Sargeant!) :lol: Anyway, probably the best ever response was one I overhead my dad giving someone. True story, and yet so funny. Salesman: Hello can I speak with the owner of the house? Dad: Speaking. Salesman: Is now a good time for me to tell you about some great rates I can get you if you remortgage through us? Dad: No, we are in the middle of dinner. Salesman: Ok, when would you like me to call you back? Dad: Well, do you have a pen and paper? Salesman: Sure one second. Dad: Ok, tell me when you are ready. Salesman: Ok got it. Dad: Ok write this down ok? Salesman: Ok, ready. Dad: Ok, write this down: DON'T.. Dad: EVER.. Dad: CALL.. Dad: THIS.. Dad: GUY... Dad: AGAIN! :lol: The best part is he waited for the response before hanging up lol! The guy hadn't had that one before apparently LOL!
