How to deal with Telemarketers


I know most people don’t care for telemarketers but I believe that it’s always best to put yourself in someone else’s shoes before making judgements about a person.  And that’s why when I get a call from a telemarketer, I set my egg timer for 30 minutes and then do my very best to be exceedingly polite and to try to get to know them as a real person and to say yes to everything they ask until the buzzer goes off and then once the buzzer goes off, I scream real loud, and tell them that my kitchen is on fire and I have to hang up.

  1. That’s not me, Laura, that’s a character I made up! I’m much quicker. Usually once I figure out it’s a telemarketer on the other end I say, “Please. I’m begging you. Take me off your call list.”

  2. Hahahaha! I guess I’ll try that one of these days!

    You see, they never really listen when you tell them to stop calling so I’m trying all these fun tips to annoy them. I get a lot from Callercenter and it’s really funny when I hear them get frustrated. They deserved it!
