I had this telmarketer call me on my cell phone once...I answered and he was all talking and whatever and I was all, "Do you have a girlfriend?" -"pause." guy-"I'm sorry, but yes, I am in a relationship. Me-"oh man you're gay aren't you?" him-"I can't tell you that." me-"come on! I always wanted a gay bestfriend!" him-"I have to go." haha

just so you know, this is no offense to gay two best friends are gay and I would run out of stores screaming if it wasn't for them lol.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Lmao. These are funny! A friend of mine keeps a "pet" rooster in the house (its legs rotted off with frostbite so it lives in the house-yeah, don't ask me why she didn't just kill it and get it over with, I told her that too) and every time someone is one the phone it somehow knows and starts crowing in the background. It's happened to me so many times-I'll just be on the phone with her and you hear a rooster cawing. So yeah, needless to say, that freaks the telemarketers out.

As for me, I usually just hang up, especially if I can't understand them.

Usually I just say, no thanks, whatever, but if they start getting pushy, or if I'm not in a good mood, I'll pretend to be interested, get them to talk, and then, mid-speech about said product or company or person, hang up. It just makes me feel better.

I'm a terrible, terrible person.

I let them talk for about 10 seconds, then scream at the top of my lungs abruptly and hang up.

My father use to keep an air horn near the phone just for telemarketers! Having had the task of doing that job myself, I speak in a foreign language! I was in England one time and a guy came up to me and asked something I didn't understand(apparently, Americans don't know English!). So, I responded in German! Instead of being just another stupid Yank, he called me a bloody tourist and walked away! But, I've also thanked a Wal-Mart employee at the automotive center in Arabic! He just ignored me, good thing because it was an accident. I had just returned from Iraq and it was still in my head! Foreign languages DO come in handy!

Treat every moment of every day as though it may be your last.
