Can't live with them, sure as hell can live without them. God, damn I just got a call from some bitch asking for a $100 donation for kids with aids. This is exactly what I said.

Listen, first of all, I can't afford to make that donation, but you could give me your home phone number and I'll call you back! Long pause...I hang up.

What's your experience with telemarketers? Any tips on what to say? What's your funniest telemarketer experience?

I have caller ID, so I just pick up whenever i know who it is. Sometimes if they keep calling and calling I will pick it up and yell fuck off and don't call back. :thumbsup:

I make them explain the situation for hours, then tell them that I'm not interested.

If it's a girl, start flirting with her. She'll be kinda lost.

Actually, if it's a guy, flirt with him as well. LOL he will never call you again :thumbsup:

I'll answer the phone in Spanish, speak with a Colombian accent, and have friends in the background talking about drugs and shit.

Well, since their jobs tend to suck ass anyway I just ask them not to call back. It's not like they enjoy their work.

And if you've never worked in a call center you probably don't realize but swearing at them just makes their day. They play "insult bingo".

Hehehee!!!!

:mad:

If your not waiting for a call, let them chat a bit, then say your interested in a donation/purchase [whateva] ! Tell them you just gotta go get ur check book/credit card, and let the phone hang... Come back every five minutes and reasure them ur still looking! I've had a chick on the phone like this for over 20 mins b4 she cracked it and hung up : use speaker phone : it's funny listening tio the weird mumbbles that come outa their mouth after a few minuites....

no matter what the telemarketer say, say "why?" in a very inquisitive honest voice.

When i get a telemarketer, i will always start hitting on them and saying dirty things to them(ex. one of my favorite is i ask them to have my baby) and needless to say when you do this, they get freacked out or pissed and will hang up. good times.

I pick up, and I listen to what they have to say - after awhile of listening; and me saying "nnn hmm" "ohhh, okay" "allright"... I hang up the phone very quietly. They'll feel really stupid when they hear the dial tone...
