Do you hate annoying telemarketing calls?

Here's a guaranteed way to get THEM to hang up so YOU don't have to!
Before they start their pitch, interrupt them and tell them how glad you are that they called, because you're doing a survey on telemarketers, and you want to ask them a few questions. When they hesitate (and they will!), tell them it'll just take about 5 or 10 minutes of their time, and when you're done, you'll be HAPPY to discuss their product!
If they agree, start asking away the following questions!

1What is your name?
2How old are you?
3How long have you been a telemarketer?
4Did you go to college?
5IF YES > > > Which college?
6Did you do well there (upper half of class)?
7What would be the perfect job for you?
8What is your favorite color?
9Have you ever bought anything from a telemarketer?
10IF YES > > > Were you satisfied with the purchase?
11For statistical purposes, what is your mother's maiden name?
12What is your social security number?
13May we call you again if we need more information?
14What is your home telephone number?

If they've answered ALL of the above questions, either come up with more (personal?) questions, and keep at 'em, or maybe they've earned that sale!

But have fun with it!
