National "Do Not Call" law? Telemarketers wholesale ignore it. Sure, they will usually hang up if you mention it, but, dammitall, I have been registered since the inception of this law, so my phone number should not be winding up on call lists to begin with. Especially this time of year, between the Medicare commercials on TV and the unwanted phone calls, there is no escape. &^%$#@!

I agree with you on this. I’ve used profane words I had forgotten that I knew dealing with this crowd. There is no end to this I fear. Oddly, ninety percent don’t speak the English that I was taught. How can a guy in Jamaica help me?
When I told the last guy who wanted me to buy a new warranty for my car that I had 1972 Datsun, he hung up on me,

Like many others, I remember the days of a single home phone, only James Bond had a car phone and Maxwell Smart had a shoe phone. You were living large if you had an extra long cord, and no one called after 9:00. If you called and no-one answered, you simply called back later. Good Times.


Oh, the Robocall machines will definitely call back later.

For days and weeks at a time. I can block 250 phone numbers, but since the machines "spoof" fake numbers now, even this doesn't help.

few times I actually answer a call not in my Contacts, I start speaking my own made up Chinese gibberish that has no meaning... LOL

"Could I please speak with William?"

"Hoing chao chi wong sai mi? Yang ti wao?"

"Uh... is this William?"

"Ching yak wo sung...ying tai waki ma?"

"Uhmmm... OK. Does anyone in the house speak English?"

(Now I get agitated) "YONG DI ME CHI AKI!! KO SUM CHANG YOK!!!!"

Depending on how big a buzz I have and my mood, I can stretch this out a while before they hang up.

with them as if he was actually interested while acting like the best Jed Clampett- “Whee doggies! You mean I can get a plastic card that that I can buy anything I want with - tell me more about that thang”. He kept them on the line as long as he could to see how frustrated they would get.

You've caught me on a day that "Amazon" is calling me

and telling me that my account was compromised... I don't have an Amazon Account. I played along being a complete jerk and frustrating the Asian Indian guy so much he hung up on me! Ha! It gets a lot of frustration out that I would have otherwise used on someone else. Probably a pour family member in the next couple of days. I've turned it in to therapy. It's actually quite fun trying to see at what point I'm playing them.

The SS Administration called last week! Man that was good times...

I get NO telemarketing calls and am disappointed. I miss wasting their time and using them for my amusement as many of you seem to be doing so well. Even the credit card junk mail offers have stopped including prepaid envelopes so I cannot send junk mail back to them.

thus, I never answer unless I know the caller, and that depends on whether or not I feel like answering!

Friends and family have said, "What if it's an emergency?" My reply, "Call the cops......." lol

"Hello?"

"No."

"No."

"No."

"No."

Until they hang up, which is pretty quickly. Anything resembling a yes or positive answer to any question can be recorded and used against you, so this is the route I take today.

The best line I heard was to whisper “It’s done but there is blood everywhere.” That should do it.

it is just some poor dude in india that has no control over the call. If you are really nice to them they will apologise and tell you that it was their Pleasure to remove you from the stupid call list.
