Hands up everyone whose sick of those annoying ‘I’m not selling
anything’ phone calls in the middle of your tea

Well here’s a few come backs which will have them hanging up on you!

1. If they want to loan you money, tell them you just filed for
bankruptcy and you could sure use some money.

2. Say “No” over and over. Be sure to vary the sound of each one, and
keep a rhythmic tempo, even as they are trying to speak. This is most
fun if you can do it until they hang up.

3. Tell the Telemarketer that you work for the same company, and
they can’t sell to employees.

4. Ask them to repeat everything they say, several times.

5. Tell them you are hard of hearing and that they need to
speak up . . . louder . . . louder . . .

6. Tell them to talk very slowly, because you want to write every
word down.

7. If they start out with, “How are you today?” say, “I’m so glad you
asked, because no one these days seems to care, and I have all these
problems. My arthritis is acting up, my eyelashes are sore, my dog
just died . . . ”

8. Tell the Telemarketer you are busy at the moment and ask him/her
if he/she will give you his/her home phone number so you can call
him/her back. When the Telemarketer explains that telemarketers
cannot give out their home numbers say, “I guess you don’t want
anyone bothering you at home, right?” The Telemarketer will agree
and you say, “Me either!” Hang up.
