Telemarketers

I wish I had the brains and guts to do this to a telemarketer! You gotta listen, it's hilarious!

Okay, what's the craziest thing you've done or said to a telemarketer?

I think the worst thing I've done to one was to speak Spanish the entire time (which the guy should have known I was full of crap since I only knew a few lines - I only took Spanish for 1 semester in college). Don't ask me why I didn't choose French since I took 5 years of that. I think that's all I've done. Oh yeah, one time a telemarketer called while I was watching CSI: Miami and it was during the actual murder, so I played that into the phone and then said, "Oh crap, I think someone's on the phone". I'm sure they knew it was the TV, but it was still better than having to talk to the morons.

My nephew answers the phone and pretends he's mentally challenged (leave it to a 14 year old - I know that's mean and I never said it was right - matter of fact my mom and I told him not to do that, but it IS funny to hear them stammer on the phone).

So, go ahead, tell me the worst you've done.

I answer the phone with "Hello, this is Panchos Taco House, How may I help you" lol.

Mike does that to a lot of people lol.

I've said that I was on my way out the door to commit my daughter to a mental facility.

I used to say there had been a death in the family and it wasn't a good time, but then my aunts started dying off..

I like the Seinfeld episode when he's fed up with a sales call. Finally he asks the person for his home number so he can call him back. When the person says they can't do that Seinfeld wants to know why and says if you can bother me at home then I can bother you.

I like to pause, breathe deeply and ask "what are you wearing?". That always gets a hang-up.
