Default Telemarketer just called...

Trying to sell me car insurance. I explained to her that I do not own a car, and kept her on the line for 5mins complaining about the illegal war, and how I would not support a war for oil where innocent lives were being taken in the name of the almighty dollar....
At first she was laughing, but I stopped that very soon.

LOLZ!!!!!!!!

I have a memorized script that I use that works very well... I interrupt them as soon as I know they are a TM and explain that I am a consultant and my rate is $160/hr minimum of 2 hours. I inform them that if they are willing to accept my invoice I will happily talk to them. They usually respond by... "But this will only take a min..." and I interrupt them again and let them know that the next thing they need to do is accept my charges or have a nice day. I haven't had one accept yet, but one of these days they will think Im bullshitting and accept it, then I will bill them.

Wow you guys are way too nice to them. I get a phone call from a TM and I walk over to the smoke alarm and hold the phone to it and press the test button. It really serves a dual purpose. It hurts there ears because they hurt my ears listing to them and at the same time I am doing my service of testing my smoke alarm.

In curcive or printing? (ALL CAPS?)

Did you use a Pilot G2 7mm refillable rollergel pen? ...a pencil? ...a crayon?

Legal pad or plain printer paper?

1 paragraph or more?

Did you indent?

Was it written down for memorization purposes, reference purposes, or just to be thilly?

I'm intrigued...
