stupid phone people [Dec. 1st, 2000|05:43 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
a telemarketer just called me with the stupidest sell line ever... i forget what it was. something about saving the children and rain forests and blind children. i mumbled something about being a poor college student and had to go. she asked if she could call back in a few days. to get her to shut up I said, "um... sure." she asked, "Are you Alfred?" I laughed.... "No, that must be somebody that lived here previously." She asked my name. "Mike Rode". Hahahahaaha.

favorite is "uhm... actually he's in the shower, can you call back in 1/2 an hour?" and see how long you can keep them calling back. Mebbe I'm just psycho and like hearing the phone ring though

Just remeber that I use your phone when people call. The next time she calls and asks for me I will stand in your room, signing up for the service until she tells me I am not eligible because I am not 21 and have no major credit card. :)

they never leave you alone

Hey, I've got a guy that calls for more than a year now. Poor soul doesn't accept that I don't want to have anything to do with him. Too bad. I'm gonna freak out when he calls me next time. Oh, well...

oooh there's a neat trick to this..
tell them to put you on their "do not call" list and mark down the date, time, and company. if they call back you can sue 'em for $500.
