Way to Irritate Telemarketers
« on: October 18, 2003, 09:28:25 pm »

I've heard these before, but I still find it cute.


When they ask "How are you today?" Tell them! "I'm

so glad you asked because no one these days seems to

care, and I have all these problems; my arthritis is

acting up, my eyelashes are sore, my dog just died..."

 

If they say they're John Doe from XYZ Company, ask

them to spell their name. Then ask them to spell the

company name. Then ask them where it is located.

Continue asking them personal questions or questions

about their company for as long as necessary.

 

Cry out in surprise, "Judy! Is that you? Oh my God!

Judy, how have you been?" Hopefully, this will give Judy

a few brief moments of pause as she tries to figure out

where the hell she could know you from.

 

If MCI calls trying to get you to sign up for the Family

and Friends plan, reply, in as SINISTER a voice as you can,

"I don't have any friends... would you be my friend?"

 

If they want to loan you money, tell them you just filed for

bankruptcy and you could sure use some money.

 

Tell the telemarketer you are busy at the moment and ask

them if they will give you their HOME phone number so you

can call them back. When the telemarketer explains that they

cannot give out their HOME number, you say "I guess you don't

want anyone bothering you at home, right?" The telemarketer

will agree and you say, "Now you know how I feel!"

 

Insist that the caller is really your buddy Leon, playing a joke.

"Come on Leon, cut it out! Seriously, Leon, how's ya been?"

 

Tell them to talk V-E-R-Y  V-E-R-Y  S-L-O-W-L-Y, because

you want to write down EVERY WORD.

My parents ALWAYS did the 'ask for their home #' one. It works, man. We don't get telemarketers anymore though.

LOL my mom does the one w/ the home # all the time!!!  Its halarious!!!  My friend did the one for the family and friend s plan thing, with a VERY sinister voice indeed.  They hung up on her, lol, how rare is that that a tele marketer should hang up and not the person they called?

My dad allways does this one:

He asks them 3 questions:  1) Where did you get this # from?
2) Why do you think I'd be interested in this?  3) Please dont call again.
It works, really, they DONT call again, lol.

My dad tried, how long a telemarketer can talk before she notices that noone is listening. A telemarketer called and asked 'are you busy' and my dad said no, so the marketer started talking and dad went to kitchen to get some coffee, dad went back after 10 minutes, took the phone and the marketer was still talking...
