Spooky a TELEMARKETER! Tell me it ain't so!! :o
I like to see how long I can keep them on the phone. I will feign interest in whatever they are selling, but am constantly interupted by things happening in the house.
Example: Oh! I am really interested in this but hold on just a minute the dinner pots boiling over. when I come back I say hold on again as the baby just fell out of the highchair. Every 1-2 minutes or so I make sure they are still there and randomly make up any excuse to make them wait again- the record is a bit over 10 minutes before they hang up in frustration. ;D

Be nice, give them a break.... failing that tell them your whole life story, 'cause it may be cheating them of quite a bit of money, but it'll sure break the monotony
The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.Sonnet XCIVBut if that flower with base infection meet,The basest weed outbraves his dignity:For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds

I'm not a telemarketer, but at times I am mistaken for one. I am a marketing rep and part of my job is to call people who have requested information from us. It is at those times I am sometimes mistaken for a telemarketer and people pull the pranks on me that were described here. And then when I tell them the reason that I am calling (because they requested some info and/or asked me to call) they usually feel like quite the idiot.

*breathes a sigh of relief*
There is a big differance tween calling someone who asked for information and the Evildoers that invade your privacy.
