I don't know exactly how it is supposed to work. All my numbers are on the register but I still get calls from random people selling stuff.

I upset one just the other day, answered the phone to "Congratulations, you have won a mobile phone. Blah, Blah, Blah."
So I said great, send it to my PO Box....
Oh, but you have to sign up......
No, the first thing you said was I won a phone, don't want any of the other crap, just send the phone....
But it doesn't work like that, you have to sign up......
Just send me the phone!!!!
But sir......
Look, I just want my phone!!!!
You have to sign up.....
OK, can you sign me up to a deal that costs $0 a month....
No.....
Why not.....
No, the deal is....
Look, you said I won a phone, you can sign me up as long as it's $0 a month, including all calls!!!
I can't do that.....
Well, that's what I have now!
How???
Company phone......
Thanks for wasting my time!!!
You're Welcome.  :D






 

i had one of those the other day.... after every sentance she would say... "yes, yes ok?" i said, go on, you're telling the story... then i started telling her a story about some girl i slept with etc... and she hung up.  :confused:

Had one today blabbing on about how he's from Miscrosoft and my (windows based)computer is being hacked blah blah. My wife just tells me to hang up but I like to waste their time just as they waste mine. So after listening to his crap I let him try and explain to me just HOW it is possible for my (windows based pc) to be attacked when in fact I run Linux? :scratchchin:
Needless to say he didn't stay on the phone much longer :D
I look forward to their calls now.

I feel sorry for the poor bastards that have to make those calls, it's the low life filth that run the company that give kids the jobs and train them. Scum.

I think it's pretty miserable and the kids just get this negativity all day, people telling them to f### off etc ALL DAY, thats not a good life.

I was in a good mood once when I was called by a telemarketer and I ended up turning the tables on him by saying I usually charge $x per hour for phone consults hence could I please have your credit card details etc and your chargeable time starts now! Poor fella got really confused and could not get off the phone fast enough!!
Forgiveness is easier to achieve than permission!
