I swear the next outsourced Indian telemarketer that phones me...

I was on the toilet. Phoned rung... rushed upstairs.

"Hello, sir how are you today?"
"Fine thank you."
"I call on behalf of ISMA, May I ask you sir.. Are you a mortgage payer."
"F*** OFF YOU SON OF A *****."

What are other peoples experiances with this annoyance?

If you have a cordeless phone, put it really close to the stole boal, and flush it Or have a whistle on Stand-By for such matters


P.s. I am still to test these, but be my guest

Well that's a relief, if people call when i'm in the shower, sleeping, eating, on the toilet etc i just don't answer - if it's important they'll call back.

Very True, or just seeing how mine times they will ring before hanging up, i know for a fact, my dad will let it Ring about 9 Times MOM for ever and my brother around 4-5 times.


This is all cute coz you can answer as soon as they are ready to hang up....

That's where the 'important call' theory comes into play.

Rape alarms work well - but they should be saved for freaky stalker phonecalls.
Other things to try...
* Hum a single note for as long as you can
* Ask for their home number so you can phone them back later to discuss whatever it is they want to talk about
* After you've said hello stay silent and see how long it takes them to hang up
* Tell them that you're so glad they've called - you've been wanting someone to ask about a rash you've found...
* Say that the doctor has advised you not to talk to cold callers/telemarketers - it brings you out in a nasty rash
* Keep coughing really loud down the phone
* Say no thanks but you've got something they might be interested in buying...
* Make a huge fart noise then just hang up
* Just hang up

I think I'm going to try a few of those... I've given up now though and usually just hang up!

Scream as load as you can, they'll put the phone down when their ears begin to bleed.
