Cold callers
Combining last weeks & this weeks QOTW, I have read a lot about cold callers, this might help. Advice I have been given (but never used of course).

First be polite, ask the callers name and thank them for the call (mild surprise for them) listen to what they are saying and ask a few reasonable questions (they wet their lips) , remember be polite - even friendly if you can.

Now express interest in the product or service on offer (caller now sees $), at this point you ask if the caller uses the product themself, this is the turning point - you should try to engage in a conversation, even for a moment (slight confusion but still seeing $). Now say " I bet you have a hard job, calling strangers and having them be rude". Wait for them to get things back on track then say "I'm naked right now... what color eyes do you have?"

Job done. Welcome to the blacklist.

Job done
You've wasted your own time while the caller doesn't give a shit be ause he/she gets paid by the hour and any sales bonus they might be paid is tiny anyway. Success! You've stuck it to The Man!

I find
flatulence a great help at times like these. I few good farts or burps down the phone at them usually does the trick.

Indecent proposals work
I usually ask female callers whether they have nice firm tits or I am wasting my time.

Yet another black list entry, yes!
