    Dickhead things to say to telemarketers

    I've given up on pressing a key to be removed from the car warranty telemarketer calls. I figure hassling a real person will cost them more money than just hanging up. So far I've come up with:
    Where has your life gone wrong that you're calling people like this?
    This is Mr. Anderson of Union Carbide, this is the 3rd time you've called me.
    How disappointed do your parents speak of you when you leave the room during holiday family gatherings?

            The car warranty fuckheads have been calling me almost every day for at least 7 months despite telling them several times to remove me from their call list. The shitbags use spoofed cell numbers so you cant call them back. If I do answer when they call I usually lead off with " You're a piece of shit, low-life scammer. I know where you are " and they usually hang up before I can say anything else. Next time they call I'm thinking about letting them go trough their whole sales pitch then give them a bunch of made up info just to waste their time.

              I just set the phone down and go about my business. If another call comes in I hang up on them.

                  I've said, "hold on, let me look up what the year of it is" then I just set the phone down. I think this is probably the most effective way to cost them money.

                    I never get a live person, it's always a recording. But lately my phone has been catching most of them, so I don't get them much anymore. Finally.

                      You just think the car warranty and student loan call are bad. Wait till you turn 64 and start getting the Medicare supplement calls. 5 calls per day and 2 letters per day.

                          I have about 400 blocked phone numbers because of the car warranty people. All calls without recognized phone numbers go to VM, if they leave a message I either call them back or block them. Anyone that doesn't leave a message gets blocked. Been my protocol for a couple years now, keeps the calls down to 1 or 2 a day at most. There for awhile I was getting 10 calls a day.

                            I normally just answer/hang up quickly unless I recognize the phone number.

                            Sometimes if I feel ornery, I will answer in Spanish to throw them off. Once a dude says "hold on, I'll get someone who speaks Spanish". When that guy came on, I began speaking French to him.....WTF?......click....dial tone.....I guess he didn't speak French either.

                              "No. Thanks. Take me off your list. Thanks." <click> (block number) - done in <10 seconds.



                              EDIT: either that, or keep asking questions & keep 'em on the line as long as possible - hurt their productivity, not their feelers.
