I just say some incredibly offensive things in a completely calm voice and they usually hang up on their own.

Not like angry things or death threats, not directed at the marketer...just seriously racist or otherwise offensive things.

Where's the sauce on cell numbers going public? Because this rumor gets refreshed every other year it seems. But if I recall, BCRDukes is in the industry, which is why I didn't dismiss it as a stupid legend originally, and shared it on my facebook...

So BCRD please share some more info

I don't know what they've ever done to piss you off personally, other than being annoying (which doesn't constitute as a legit reason to hate/bash someone).

how can you justify what they are doing just because they get paid shit. i think its fine to hate on them, because they are a nuisance, in fact i'll go so far to say their intrusive. Unless its government related or a census, they should go and get a real job.

Tomorrow, I'm going to create a job. My employee's sole purpose will be to follow you around and annoy you.

We had one telemarketer call THREE times in the same day. The third time they fucking called TEN MINUTES after the second call.

theyre often from countries where this is a top of the line job and options are limited and conditions harsh

My boss got annoyed coming in every morning to two or three spam faxes. So he called up the place to get himself removed from their list. They stopped for a couple weeks...

Then we started getting more, from a different "remove us from this list" number. Same faxes, though. Boss just got fed up and said "fuck it". Now he just uses scrap paper in the fax machine 'cause that's basically all that's coming out. I told him he should do the whole e-fax thing, so that you can see what it is and choose what to print.

But he's lazy.


The more you put your number out there, the more shit you'll get.

I enjoy fucking with them. Whenever they call I answer and mess with them, it takes them from an anoyance to something fun to do. That's not to say I want to get called everyday but once in a while can be fairly entertaining.

Just give them some reason to put them on hold like " brb water boiling let me turn off the stove and come back "

put phone down somewhere else, return to room and continue fapping.

That motherfucking fog horn scares the shit out of me sometimes cause when you pick up, it doesn't play instantly. Instead, there's a delay of 2-3 seconds which makes me think that the caller hung up already.

do not bother putting you name on a DNC list. the list is silply sold to an off shore company that can call you without penalty OR cost EG: google voice/skype etc.

just invest in a call block app. there are also free ones. for iPhone = iBlacklist. Android = Mr.Number. unfortunately you still have to take 1 telemarketing call to get their number and add to your personal block list.

if you cant do that. waste their time the best you can. ask them to hold....walk away. Talk about unrelated things like pimples or how hard your shit was this morning. you get the idea.

don't bother calling back to complain or ask for removal. its useless. now they KNOW your phone # works.
