Before our Do Not Call Registry kicked in I'd answer the phone. If it was a telemarketer asking for "Mr or Mrs XXX" I'd say "one minute, I'll get them". I'd place the phone down and go back to watching TV or working on whatever it was I was doing when they interrupted me. After about 5 minutes I'd come back. Only had 2 or 3 who actually waited and to those I'd say "Oh sorry, they're not here, can I take a message?" Good times.

Thats one that actually works everytime! I love those seinfield ones or the one with the murder scene, but the first seinfield doesnt work everytime. If they respond differently your screwed :P

Excellent tip!

Thing is tho, we don't have a land line. All these calls are on his cell.

I had someone call and ask me if I knew the names of the three Jonas brothers... and that I could win a million bucks...

I dont even know the jonas brothers other than they are from like.. Disney or something? Nickelodean?

Anyway, it was a local number from my home town so I asked him if i knew him, and he said "no i dont think so" so I just said ok, and hung up :\

Not a telemarketer, but a lame prank call...

That is a burn of epic proportions :P Too bad most telemarketeers get payed by the client they reel in. At least here in The Netherlands. Thats why IMO its a shitty job.

I got paid by the hour and had bonuses for sales.

It was indeed a shitty job, i got fired after 3 months, cause all i did was chat with the people i called.

And whenever the person picking up sounded like a hot girl, i told her i got her number from a friend and started flirting with her.


Incredible how angry they get when they find out your a telemarketer after that.
