It seems to be getting worse with sales calls selling crap and taking up time. 4 & 5 times a day. Always right when I'm busy. :smt097

Then you have the foreigner, usually Spanish or India'n, you can't understand trying to sell you an American product.

And nothing a person can do. :smt068 :smt067:mad:

Just venting.

When I see an 800 number or unavailable on my caller id,I either don't answer it or I answer it and make it sound like I'm interested in what they are selling, then just set the phone down and walk away,let them waste their time talking no nobody :smt067:smt067:smt068:smt068

Go there and register your phone #. Cell, home, work, etc.

Its slowed down a lot here at work after me doing that. Not completely stopped, but helped a bunch.

I always tell them to hold on for a minute - put the phone on hold and go on about my business - come back in about 10 minutes - they are always gone - another one of the things that get under my skin is the 10 credit card apps that I receive in the mail everyday- I have been shoving the application (blank of course) into the enclosed envelope and mailing it back to them.....

We used to get 4-5 calls a day. I'd call them everything in the book, put them on hold forever, etc. About 4 months ago we went to an automated phone system. The pain in the ass, press, 1,2,3, etc., Since we went to that phone system, I haven't had one sales call.

i send them back pizza hut coupons, me and a bunch of neighbors did that for a few years, now our ZIP doesn't get nearly as many, guess they figured it wasn't worth the stamps they were wasteing

Told a female telemarketer once that she sounded just like my ex girlfriend that just dumped me, I couldn't take the pain of hearing her voice and was going to go hang myself. The last thing I heard before I hung up was " Wait sir, I didn't mean to......" click! Didn't get a call for quite some time.

Being in business for 20 years, I am on EVERY mailing list, and EVERY telemarketers call list!! I have gotten to where if it is an 800 number, blocked, or anything unusual, I don't even answer it, I let it go to voice-mail, but NOW they have a system that uses local area codes, so for example, my area code is 772, well that is what shows up when some telemarketers call, so now we are really fucked! :smt093

My Dad had one on the phone years back, he asked " do you know what part of the world you are calling right now?" She said "Wilmington DE." He asked " do you know what state DE. is?" She said "sure I do... Detroit"

Had a salesman call me about windows for my house, set up a appointment with address and at the last minute of the phone call told him I had to talk with the landlord to make sure I could put in new windows. He never called again to this day.

Just tell them you are a corporate Store or owned and hang up. It seems to keep them from calling after you tell them that
