Let's hear some funny stories. What are some of the things you have heard, been thru or attempted to do when telemarkerters call?

I myself usually pick up the call, ask them to hold one minute at which point I leave them on the counter and go back to watching tv, letting them wait however long until they hang up on their own.

I know a co-worker of mine always tries to sell them his car. That in itself is pretty funny.

Any other stories?

Our two local papers hound you at least a couple times a month. They took me off their call list because I asked if the paper came printed in braille LOL

I try to sell a made up product to them. Or I use my yodeling talents and annoy the heck out of them.

I have a few stunts I do when they call.
1) Say my parents are on holidays, and when they ask when are they coming back, I say oh in 7 months. They're in Swaziland.
2) Burst in to tears, and insult them and ask why would they call at a time like this? My parents are dead, how could you even mention their name?
3) Take the phone to the TV, put it on Disney channel and make them listen to whatever show is on.
4) Pretend I'm the adult, and ask them to read out the terms and conditions of the product. I ask them lots of questions about the product, and then say thank you for your time and hang up :)

I remember one time this old guy called me and I broke out into tears and came up with a story about how my boyfriend broke up with me, and I made up stupid stories about said fake boyfriend. lol. It was fun.

I don't do pranks with telemarketers. Some of my friends have worked as marketers and I know they just try to earn their salary. I usually just say 'no thanks' and hang up. Even I've sometimes came across with some very rude marketers.
