    If it's some foreign call-center that calls us, I take great pleasure in speaking in as thick a dialect as I can muster, and asking the caller to speak up because I can't understand their accent. Works a treat.

    You know that the people that do these jobs only do it because there is **** all out there. Just be polite and say no and ask to be taken off the list and that is adequate.

    I didn't actually tell him to GTFO but it was tempting. I actually think he was dodge tbfh. He asked me, "did you receive this (pointing to a leaflet he had in his hand)?" I couldn't tell wtf 'this' was from where I was standing, he was about 2 metres in front of me. His sales pitch was ****ing embarrassing, I actually felt nervous for him, and he put on a retarded salesperson voice. I was having none of it, said I wasn't the homeowner, said the homeowners were not present and that was that. Bid a friendly farewell and closed the door, intit.

    :cool:

    It's been an exciting, fun-filled day.

    Well basically oxfam rang so my dad put it on speaker phone and he started to build up the story that the oxfam lady had infact rung my dad in the middle of a wake and he was there apologisin to the vicar (played by me... in an irish accent ) We were in creases for ages after that
