HOW TO HANDLE TELEMARKETERS:
1. If they want to loan you money, tell them you
just filed for bankruptcy and you could sure use some money.
they start out with, "How are you today?" say, "Why do you want to know?"
Alternately, you can tell them, "I'm so glad you asked, because no one these
days seems to care, and I have all these problems; my arthritis is acting up,
my eyelashes are sore, my fish just died..." When they try to get to the sell,
just keep talking about your problems.
3. If they say they're John Doe
from XYZ Company, ask them to spell their name. Then ask them to spell the
company name. Then ask them where it is located. Continue asking them personal
questions or questions about their company for as long as necessary.
This works great if you are male Telemarketer: "Hi, my name is Judy and I'm
with XYZ Company..." You: Wait for a second and with a real husky voice ask,
"What are you wearing?"
5. Cry out in surprise, "Judy! Is that you? Oh
my God! Judy, how have you been?" Hopefully, this will give Judy a few brief
moments of terror as she tries to figure out where she could know you from.
6. Say "No", over and over. Be sure to vary the sound of each one, and
keep a rhythmic tempo, even as they are trying to speak. This is most fun if
you can do it until they hang up.
7. If MCI calls trying to get you to
sign up for the Family and Friends Plan, reply, in as SINISTER a voice as you
can, "I don't have any friends...would you be my friend?"
8. If the
company cleans rugs, respond: "Can you get out blood? Can you get out GOAT
blood? How about HUMAN blood?
9. After the Telemarketer gives their
spiel, ask him/her to marry you. When they get all flustered, tell them that
you could not just give your credit card number to a complete stranger.
10. Tell the Telemarketer that you work for the same company, they
often can't sell to employees.
11. Answer the phone. As soon as you
realize it is a Telemarketer, set the receiver down, shout or scream "Oh my
God!!!" and then hang up.
12. Tell the Telemarketer you are busy at the
moment and ask them if they will give you their HOME phone number so you can
call them back. When the Telemarketer explains that they cannot give out their
HOME number, you say "I guess you don't want anyone bothering you at home,
right?" The Telemarketer will agree and you say, "Now you know how I feel!"
13. Ask them to repeat everything they say, several times.
14. Tell them it is dinner time, BUT ask if they would please hold. Put
them on your speaker phone while you continue to eat at your leisure. Smack
your food loudly and continue with your dinner conversation.
the Telemarketer you are on "home incarceration" and ask if they could bring
you some groceries......
16. Ask them to fax the information to you,
and make up a number.
17. Tell the Telemarketer, "Okay, I will listen
to you. But I should probably tell you, I'm not wearing any clothes."
18. Insist that the caller is really your buddy Leon, playing a
joke."Come on Leon, cut it out! Seriously, Leon, how's your momma?"
Tell them you are hard of hearing and that they need to speak up...louder...
20. Tell them to talk VERY SLOWLY, because you want
to write EVERY WORD down..........

WARNING FROM THE MINISTRY OF FISH AND WILDLIFE:
Due to the rising frequency of human-bear
encounters, the Fish and Wildlife Branch is advising hikers, hunters,
fishermen, and any persons that use the out-of-doors in a recreational or work
related function to take extra precautions while in the field.
advise the outdoorsman to wear little noisy bells on clothing so as to give
advanced warning to any bears that might be close by so you don't take them by
surprise. We also advise anyone using the out-of doors to carry "pepper spray"
with him or her in case of an encounter with a bear.
also be on the watch for fresh bear activity, and be able to tell the
difference between black bear poop and grizzly bear poop.
Black bear poop
is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur.
Grizzly bear poop
has bells in it, and smells like pepper.
