That's AWESOME! The best I ever came up with was asking them to hold on a minute and then putting the phone down and walking away - some of them are so desperate for a sale they were still there 10 minutes later!

I am sooooooo glad I no longer have a home phone!! I do not miss telemarketing calls AT ALL!!!!


I used to go home to my parent's house at lunch when I was working. Without fail a telemarketer would call during lunch. Once my father told me to say he was dead - I did. The poor person on the other end felt bad. Well don't you know it the next day, my husband was working (police officer) and came home to bring me to the hospital. My dad had collapsed. First of all, he ended up being fine. Moral of the story - never say someone has expired!!

That is so funny! I am going to have to try that.


That's a good one! I usually answer and if there is a delay in them answering I hang up....otherwise I tell them I am not interested and then hang up. I do not have the time of day for them.espeically if they are calling after 8:00pm grrrr


haha. thats too funny! I wish I could come up with something like that off the top of my head!


bwahahaahaaaaha! love it.

One night we were having dinner at my husband's parents' house. The phone rang during dinner and my husband answered. The person asked for my FIL. My husband told them that he'd died. The person on the other end of the line? My FIL's life insurance agent!


I have yet to receive a call for a candidate. I think that would be fun to say I'm voting for the other person.
