Currying Favour...Not!

Gosh, I can't believe today's little episode...

Here's the background....

I hate Indian telemarketers with a passion, I hate the intrusion despite a Do Not Call being put in place. It's up there with those stupid phishing emails from the bank, don't get me started on them either.

I had a call this afternoon from the forementioned. I knew it was a telemarketer - they immediately asked for Mrs N. I asked him what it was regarding. The persistent little prick kept saying "I want to talk to Mrs N" to which I said, "she won't come to the phone, unless she knows who is calling". He kept on going, to which finally I told him to go f*** himself.

Five minutes later I get a call from the same bloke telling me to f*** off and that I was the craziest f*****g bitch in Brisbane. Whilst on the F word, un --effing -believable.

I know where I'd like to shove an extra hot vindaloo right now....

My solution now to telemarketers..."hello, hello, hello...sorry I can't hear you...*click"

I had one ring up - they were about to say hello and I realised what it was so hung up. They rang back and abused me telling me how rude it is to hang up on people - and then hung up on me. And of course the number is hidden so I couldn't ring and complain.

Very very very very annoying.

what. a. fuckwit.

still. you aren't a desperate fuckwit telemarketer, which means you are superior and better in every single way.

i would become a hooker before i was a telemarketer. at least that job is about making people feel GOOD.

SMILE!!!!

What a Fuckwit! I have a private number which helps. I only get the odd telemarketer call.

My rule is: if I pick up and say hello and there isn't a response within a couple of seconds, I hang up.

Wow, be careful Liz, those telemarketers are insane. I've seen stories like this on current affairs type shows where the telemarketer gets revenge by going on a phone rage - stalking campaign that went on for months with telstra being unable to do anything about it.

Thanks guys!
Anon- definite food for thought - I thought about that actually a bit later on, but I was so cranky at the time that I let this twit have it....

OMG What a freak! I'm with Nicole, if there's a pause I'll just hang up or if my caller id says out of range I don't answer it.

Hey Liz

I play a trick on telemarketers and you can really hear their frustration ...........when the phone used to ring (don't have a land line anymore) you always know it is a telemarketer because of the delay. Then the game I play is that I never ever say hello first, and if it is a telemarketer, I just don't say anything at all. the longest persistant caller was 5 minutes! hehehehe. They never seem to call back!
