    Seriously? I know how this can get. My family used to be in the DEAD middle of dinner, and FIVE nights out of the week the SAME DAMN PLACE would call us and my mom finally yelled at them "I`ve told you guys TIME AND TIME AGAIN to take me OFF of your list, I`m NOT interested," and it took SEVERAL MORE times before they listened 9_9...

    What pisses me off is that I`m a loan officer and I call people who have MADE INQUIRIES about mortgage loans. Then they give ME an attitude, when I am trying to save them a anywhere from a hundred grand to a million dollars.

    People have balls, and this guy is no exception, just ask nicely to get taken off our list, if you don`t ask nicely, I put you on to be called in 20 minutes until you go nuts.

    The whole telemarking thing in Britain is getting out of hand. I get at least five of them every day, offering me the latest offers or "have you had an accident in the last five years?". And they`re from foreign countries, especially India, so they usually pronounce your name wrong. I just think he had enough of it, and quite rightly so.

    I agree on some level with Cryptica and others.

    But there comes a time when you`ve just had enough. When they KEEP FRIGGING CALLING. I went bat-poo on a telemarketer once myself. At first I felt really good, but then, I felt like I do after I make some lame teenager look stupid on IAB: proud of myself.

    Wow that was funny. I work odd shifts and most of them are nights so when I went off on someone once it was cause they had called every day for 2 weeks and every time I had told them to take me off the list. Finally I recorded several of the calls from my end and eventually asked for a manager, then told her that she was being recorded from my end and instructed her to take me off the list for her company and any other companies that she can take me off of, otherwise I would take the tape to my lawyer along with 16 other tapes where I had asked to be removed from their list and would sue the company and everyone who had called right out of existance. Never got a call again from ANY telemarketer on that line.

    I like the Seinfeld episode when Jerry gets a telemarketer call and Jerry tells the caller that he`s busy but can he get his home number and call him later? and the telemarketer says no, I really don`t want that and Jerry says well, now you know how I feel...or something to that nature, anyways basically a good way to tell them STOP CALLING ME!!

    Heres a quick tip for anyone bein` bugged by telemarketing go to go to the menu on the left and click register. It stops all unsolicited calls by telemarketers. it takes 6 - 8 weeks but you won`t be bothered by another telemarketer again! :D But it only works in the UK :(

    well, he said "take me off this." I would have just disconnected his service and said later "well all he was doing was cursing at me and I thought that`s what he wanted!" Then I`m sure he could have gotten the customer for abuse.

    i love telemarketers they are the high point of my day i take them around in circles the call goes something like this
    Me: Hello
    TM: Hello we are calling from(company Name Here)
    ME: ok
    TM: (starts trying to see me there piece of poo)
    they get in to there speach like 30 seconds and i ring the doorbell
    Me: One second i have to get the door
    TM: ok
    I put down the phone and walk away and come back 45 seconds later
    Me: OK can you start agian
    let them get a little farther this time than set off something else (crying baby for example)
    SAMe as before walk away and come back like 1 mintue later

    THE SWEET PART IS THE TM ISNT ALLOWED TO HANG UP INTILL YOU ARE RUDE OR abusetive so just keep them on the line you are doing a favore to the world by not letting them call anyone else.

    I`m hearing impaired and have a speech impediment and a high voice, so when I talk to them, they always think I`m a mentally disabled kid and either hang up first, or I play dumb and hang up on them when they ask to speak to my mommy. It`s probably the only time my speech impediment is an advantage. :-)

    That was a riot.

    I worked telemarketing years ago. Unlisted numbers are easy to find. 1st there is the regular list that has all the area`s listed numbers like this:


    We call 555-1236 and make a note if it`s a fax, business or home. Then hammer it if it`s a home.

    Poor caller. He`s only doing his job. I mean, yeah it`s annoying when they call but at the end of the day they don`t do it for the good of their health and if I were in his shoes, and my callee asked to be removed from the list, and remove him.

    Unless conning your mate into calling a psychopath for a laugh is how they cheer themselves up in TM offices!

    i know something more fun that drating w/telemarketers.

    go on a crowded elevator and when the last couple people leave, say something along the lines of "i love you" as the doors close.

    its soo funny the look on their face.

    Telemarketers are evil, and sometimes you really have to go apepoo to get their attention.
    Honestly, there are some really, really evil telemarketers out there. I`ve worked for them. They don`t care what you think, they`ll keep calling.

    Once I told a telemarketer-that wanted to speak to my dad-that he died, and she SPAZZED! She was all, "Oh my goodness! I`m so sorry! God bless you!" Then I got off and almost died myself, laughing so hard!

    haha, i feel bad for them, it`s a job, it`s the damn companies fault not theirs, it is annoying though.
    my last name has iranian roots or somthing so some dumbass that speaks Farsi (parsi?) keeps calling me and is all "GAFSAJFHLSKAJFHSAFJSA" and i go, huh? and then i say stupid things, like, Where do you call most often? MEHICO AMIGO! and once, i got all the way to the big boss for final conformation, and they were like Are you over 18, answer me with a yes answer me with a no... me: maybe... female boss: what does that mean Me: i`m 11, i just have a deep voice...

    in the distance, the boss is yelling at the poor employee and i`m laughing my ass off.

    Blah, that was mean. I used to work in a call center but NOT telemarketing. I did follow up calls (for example if you bought a new car, I called to see how the car buying experience went) and etc, and people would ASSUME and blow up at me before they even knew. What an a$$hole.

    To be honest I aint surprised by his reaction. The amount of calls households in the UK get every day from companies is stupid. I`ve worked in telemarketing myself and I can`t stand them either. I understand they are doing their jobs and they have to be persistant but when someone says no they should actually listen to the person, and I know from working for these companies even when your giving something away thats `free` as some others have said theres always something hidden somewhere like they have to purchase something to get it or some other hidden agreement. Now I just waste as much of their time as I possibly can, plus they must think I have everything wrong with me. If Sky call I tell them I`m blind etc. but my favorite I do is when another telephone company calls, I tell them I`m deaf and can`t use a telephone, that really confuses them.

    I listen to what most telemarketer`s have to say and I don`t get short with them, but as soon as they mention a survey or any weird input like that then i say "No, I`m not interested, thank you". If they insist, then I hang up. Simple. The temptation to swear is pretty big though :-D

    I once took a call from a Halifax woman. (Halifax being the bank.) She had a Scottish accent - only slightly - and garbled and burbled about some insurance thing. Easily for about 10 minutes. All the while she was asking what I thought, and I would say that it sounded like a good deal. But somehow she confused "That could be a good idea" with "Sign me up right now!"

    At the end of it all, when she asked if I would go for it, I ended up telling her no. I bet she was pissed off with me!

    Something my dad said when he recieved one of those calls is very memorable to me. He picked up the phone and the telemarketer asked to speak to him, to which my dad answered: "I`m sorry, he`s deceased." And hung up.

    The calls stopped for several years. Effective, hmm?

    what you do is... whatever theyre selling, talk about how much a competing company is better. for exapmle... if someone calls you offering AT&T phone service, talk about how your Road Runner digital service is so good, how cheap it is, and how easy it was to install. if they talk about their product, talk about why yours is better, even if you have to make it up.
    or, you could say your already using that product and this is just a different number, and they would probly stop calling

    I find it fun to try and get them to hang up first...

    "Hello, would you like a fitted kitchen from Kitchens Direct?"

    "Tell me you love me."

    "Pardon? Would you like a fitted kitchen?"

    "Tell me you love me first."

    "...I`m sorry?"

    "Do you want me?"

    -Phone goes dead-

    "Yes!" *feeling of glee*

    Trying asking for help with your algebra homework.
    Done it before,they hang up after hearing something like:
    If "X" is equal to 5 and "Y" is equal to 16 and "Z" is equal to 22,what is "X" squared,raised to the fifth plus "Y" and times "Z"?

    And that isn`t even hard.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I am a telemarketer. It`s a job, not a career - it`s a way to put food on the table. Believe me guys, the job is crap enough already before people that think it`s funny start abusing us. Having to spend 8 hours a day in a cramped, noisy office on acthe phone, being expected to make another call as soon as you hang up the previous one and being treated like a lower form of life by people with different jobs in the office is not a fun environment to work in. The quickest way to end the call and stop future callbacks is to be nice and ask us to remove you from our database - if you ask, we`re legally obliged to. Hang up on us and we WILL call you back another time - not out of spite, it`s just our job.

    To reiterate, we`re just doing our jobs guys, spare a thought for how poo our jobs are BEFORE you abuse us. Would you abuse someone so badly if they were actually stood in front of you? We`re people too.

    dude, I work in a call center. we`re just doing our job. If you don`t want us to call back, don`t swear at us, just kindly inform us that you want to be off the list, confirm we heard it and that we are doing that, and then say goodbye. Now, if you`re tlaking to AOL and trying to cancel you may have to swear..... Basically, imagine if it was your kid you`re talking to on the phone and it was his job. For those of you who like your kids, how would you want someone to talk to them?

    hey, you know someone told me if you refuse to hang up your phone when they call, they cant make any other out going calls. so you can answer it, put it to one side and finish eating dinner or whatever and they can`t do anything. i havent tried it yet though.
    my brother answered one once, there was a Japanese lady with really bad english. it was pretty funny.
    `is this Mr. Turner?`
    `this is *A* Mr. Turner.`
    `Can I speak Japanese?`
    `I don`t know, can you?`
    `Umm, I mean, can you speak Japanese?`
