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