20 funny things to say to telemarketers

Recommended Posts

1. If they want to loan you money, tell them you just filed for

bankruptcy and you could sure use some money.

2. 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 . . . "

3. If they say they're John Doe from XYZ Company, ask them to

spell their name. Then ask them to spell the company name. Then

ask them where it is located, how long it has been in business,

how many people work there, how they got into this line of work

if they are married, how many kids they have, etc. Continue

asking them personal questions or questions about their company

for as long as necessary.

4. This works great if you are male. Telemarketer: "Hi, my name

is Judy and I'm with XYZ Company. " You: Wait for a second and

with a real husky voice ask, "What are you wearing?"

5. Cry out in surprise, "Judy? Is that you? Oh my God! Judy, how

have you been?" Hopefully, this will give Judy a few brief

moments of terror as she tries to figure out where she could

know you from.

6. 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.

7. If MCI calls trying to get you to sign up for the Family and

Friends Plan, reply, in as sinister a voice as you can, "I don't

have any friends, would you be my friend?"

8. If the company cleans rugs, respond: "Can you get out blood?

Can you get out goat blood? How about human blood?"

9. After the Telemarketer gives his or her spiel, ask him or her

to marry you. When they get all flustered, tell them that you

can't just give your credit card number to a complete stranger.

10. Tell the Telemarketer that you work for the same company,

and they can't sell to employees.

11. Answer the phone. As soon as you realize it is a

Telemarketer, set the receiver down, scream, "Oh my God!" and

then hang up.

12. 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.

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

14. Tell them it is dinner time, but ask if they would please

hold. Put them on your speaker phone while you continue to eat

at your leisure. Smack your food loudly and continue with your

dinner conversation.

15. Tell the Telemarketer you are on "home incarceration" and

ask if they could bring you some beer.

16. Ask them to fax the information to you, and make up a number.

17. Tell the Telemarketer, "Okay, I'll listen to you. But I

should probably tell you, I'm not wearing any clothes."

18. Insist that the caller is really your buddy Leon, playing a

joke. "Come on, Leon, cut it out! Seriously, Leon, how's your

momma?"

19. Tell them you are hard of hearing and that they need to

speak up . . . louder . . . louder . . .

20. Tell them to talk very slowly, because you want to write

every word down.

telemarketers. No animals were harmed in the testing

"That fairy needs to stop shouting in my ear, or I'm going to throw her friend I have trapped in the bottle into a lava pit or something. HEY, LISTEN! No, YOU listen. If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link

Oh! I got a few too! Telemarketers around here HATE calling me because I play with them. My phone has hold music and I'll put them on hold for 30 minutes or so. I also might tell them that I already have what they are selling. And one of my favorite questions is, "Have you bought this product for yourself?" Most telemarketers will say "no." :D

If MCI calls trying to get you to sign up for the Family and

Friends Plan, reply, in as sinister a voice as you can, "I don't

have any friends, would you be my friend?"

Ya know, I read this, and not ten minutes later I got a telemarketer...After they hung up, I laughed myself sick! X'D

Cobra 2 answered the phone once, and said "spork" needless to say, they were confused.
