Yea I get these damn calls from MCI (phone company) 5-6 times a day. The thing is, is that I dont even use them as a telephone provider, and im on the "no call list". I've even hung up on them and told them to fuck off. Any thing you know which might get them to stop calling?

I always act polite and ask them friendly to call me tomorrow, the next couple of days I do the same.

somehow it stops :confused:

Just fuck with them. Make a game out of how long you can string them along while having no intention of buying into their shit. It prolly won't get the calls to stop, but at least you can have some fun while they're at it. See how pissed off you can get em before they hang up on you. Yeah, I know it's not a nice thing to do, but they are the ones with the annoying and intrusive job of bothering you. Occupational hazzard as far as I'm concerned.

It took me about 2 months to get these fuckers to stop calling me, but you have to be rude. Demand that they take your name and # out of there computer. They will tell you some bullshit about how it will take up to 60 days before it is out of there system. You will probably get 1 or 2 more calls from them. Again, be rude and demand them to remove your name and # from the list. After 3 calls from them, they finally stopped.

Either that or track every one of those fucks down and cutr their tongues out.

don't fuck with them. they're getting paid to do something they HATE and they know everyone else ALSO hates. you wouldn't want to be on the other end of the phone call. trust me -- they don't look forward any more happily to calling you than you do to them calling.

just say "please delete me from your list." and when they say "have a nice night," respond with the same.

Hey

You could always just pick up the phone and start pressing buttons. In the end, you get the satisfying evil feeling on how you are annoying them just as much as they're annoying you.... :p

Tell them to "hold on a second I'm right in the middle of something.......Just one second, I'm really interested in your offer." Leave the phone off the hook.

Then Go turn on some porn really loud. on his/her end all she hears is "Ohhh...Ohhhh...Yea give it to me baby.......yes fuck me hard...........SUCK THAT COCK BITCH!!!" You get the idea. After the money shot go back to the phone sounding all out of breath and say, "Huf, Huff, Puff, OK, ....huf,huf....You were saying?"

Even funnier is if he/she is still there and they sound out of breath, like they were just masturbating in their cubicle @ work, listening to it.

Another option, is replace the porn with real sex if your sex partner is present, It might even be an interesting voyeuristic kind of thing.

Or a really violent movie. Gunshots, screams, bumps, the works. Then get on the phone and say "Sorry, I had problems with my neigbor.... again."

Or you could just fuck with them.
Caller: "We are willing to offer you long distance for 1 cent an hour!"
You: "$1 an hour! That's rediculous!"
Caller: "No, sir, 1 cent an hour."
You: "Oh, 1 cent an hour? That's really low."
Caller: "Yes sir, it is and if you act now you will get..."
You: "But 1 cent an hour isn't enough."
Caller: "Our company thinks it is."
You: "But minimum wage is $5.25 and you expect me to work for a cent an hour?"
Caller: "No, sir we are selling..."
You: (yelling)"I'M NOT GOING TO WORK IN YOUR FACIST SWEAT SHOP LIKE A SLAVE!!!"
Caller: "But sir, we're..."
You: "DON'T YOU GET IT? THEY ARE HERE ALREADY!!!"
Caller: "What, sir?"
You: "I'm a mam, not a sir."
Caller: "I'm sorry mam."
You: (angrily)"What did you just call me?"
Caller: "Mam."
You: "I'M A SIR!"
Caller: "But you just said..."
You: "THEY ARE HERE ALREADY!!! OH MY GOD!!!"
Caller: "Sir?"
You: (piercing scream)"AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH"

There was a radio commercial with an obviously mentally handicapped person talking to a tellemarketer for a phone service. I don't remember which one. But it was so annoying to listen to and the ad went on for like 5 min. I say, act like you're the guy in the add. Most ppl won't stand for it and if worse comes to worse, just say, I have to go, my dad doesn't want me to talk on the phone and if he finds me he'll hit me. Otherwise, a friend of mine will answer the phone and if it's a tellemarketer, she'll just start talking to them like she would a friend. Hi how are you today. Oh that's fabulous. Don't let them get a breath in. They can't stand that. Or tell them that you're not 18. Usually stops them right away. Try something like that. I dunno.

You could always rip off "Crank Yankers"...

"Hello?"
"Yes I'm calling from the phone company.. You'll love this amazing deal on long distance..."
"Sure, let me put my brother on the phone!" ... "Hello?"
"Yes, today we want to offer you an excellent new promotion.."
"That sounds great! My brother will love this! Let me put him on the phone..."
"Hello? Hi! I'm very interested in your product!"
"Yes we're very excited to offer you 1 cent a minute long distance..."
"Wait! That's exactly what my brother has been looking for! Let me put my brother on the phone..."
"Hello? Yes, my brother said you had a long distance deal? I'm paying way too much now!"
"Great, this is our best offer yet. Here's the details..."
"Hold on this is absolutely perfect for my brother he'll sign up right now. Let me put my brother on the phone..." ... "Hello?"
"Yes sir, are you interested in this amazing deal?"
"Absolutely, tell my brother all about it. Hold on a sec." ... "Hello?"
"Would you like to place an order for our product?"
"Definatly, just have to know all the details!"
"Okay, all you have to do is..."
"Wow! Hold on, let me put my brother on the phone!"

Run it to the ground. :)

What are you 3rd party sales?
Everyone has a job they hate. You know I get yelled and cursed at every fucking day in my job. I love to fuck with telemarketers.
"Hey you sound like a sexy bitch, whats your home email?"
They hang up.
Or I like to give them some sales pointers:
"You have a good pitch but what you need to say is...so that....blah, blah, blah." And dont let them speak for at least five minutes.

Yes, I am evil. But I am cute when I am evil, so its all good.

nah; i'm just old enough to have a little self-respect.

and no, i don't have a job i hate. i have a career i love and wouldn't trade for anything.

back to the point, though; why make someone's life difficult who is only making yours difficult because the person they depend upon for food tells them to?

so you'll make their lives difficult because they are FORCED to call people who don't want them calling? it's not their fault. it's just like why you can't call tech support and yell at them for when the product you bought failed.

people like you are the ones responding to arab killings by killing more arabs.

i bet you like bush, too.

and i bet you don't like your job any more than the telemarketer likes theirs. :(

but man.. don't spread the negativity if nothing good will come of it. it's not their fault they were supposed to call you. if they weren't there, the company that wants into your wallet would have someone else make the call.

just ask them to take you off their list and don't worry about it. save the wrath for the people and companies that DESERVE it!

that example in your tech support makes me want to reach through the phone and slap the bejesus out of him.

Actually, I really love my job. I hated nursing. I make more money now anyways and get to do some pretty cool stuff. I just hate talking to assholes, but there are some pretty cool people I get to talk to too.
They take me off their list. And then they call back the next week.
