How to deal with telemarketers..

December 8th, 2008 at 08:02 pm

We are on the Do not Call list so we rarely get a call, but tonight an 800 number comes up. I answer and it just so happens DH was standing behind me looking at an e-mail we had received. The nice lady asks for "Mr. Smith". I hand the phone over to him and duck out of the room.

She is trying to sell him that disability coverage or something for our one outstanding credit card debt. He told her if things were so bad he could not make the payment, he might as well "end it all". I started laughing so hard, he could barely get off the phone. Maybe you had to be there....

So dropped off my purchases for the 10-month-old little girl who's name I pulled off a giving wreath at work. DH and I dug through Costco's well priced Carter's jammies to find the right size for her, along with 2 outfits, Baby Einstein books, a really cute little jacket and a Catipillar toy that you roll balls down (a woman in Target said her daughter loved it).

I noticed only one name left on the wreath I picked off of. If no one takes it by Friday, I may be shopping for another child.

    That poor telemarketer will be signing up for hotline training now, all because of your hubby! LOL

    Oh my hubby loves to toy with those guys. They either rue the day they get him, or enjoy the laugh. Wink
    Hmm, I just made a realization why he HATES those pre-recorded ones. He can't toy with them!

    lol. my boss does something similar: when someone calls selling telephone line products, they are usually ringing from a foreign country and don't speak english too well, so he starts to suggest THEY buy a phone line from HIM. they get so confused that they hang up.
