Healthy Levels Of Insanity 58 by NoxSatuKeir Healthy Levels Of Insanity 58 by NoxSatuKeir
when a telemarketer asks how you're doing, go on a 20 minute long rant about your relationship issues and see how long you can keep them on the phone.

Whenever we're called by telemarketers asking for 'Mr. 'insert name', my brother and I reply with, "Oh...I'm so sorry...He, uh...He's not with us anymore..." In a really grim voice. :D

Or even better; Answer the phone with "hello is this (insert randomly bizzare name here)" and when they reply with "no..." say, "oh sorry, wrong number" then just hang up on them!!! :D

I was about seven or so when I mistook a telemarketer for one of my mother's friends. I told her she was in the shower, and that she was pregnant and - our whole life story basically, and then finally after possibly ten minutes mom comes out of the shower, takes the phone, says "hello?"
And then. The telemarketer says, "your kid is soo cute"
Of course I turned three shades of red and almost fell senseless with embarrassment. I still cringe thinking about it. Almost as bad as the time I gave this nice guy directions to a little convenience store at a university....the store was in the laundry mat *face palm* I can't talk to strangers very well

Haven't tried that, but my brother has his own way;
Instead of listening to their pitch he tries to sell grain(wheat) to the marketers.
So far none have taken him up on it.

That's a bit morbid, and you have to be careful or they'll either call the cops, or worse, find out you were joking and call back!!
