Default Got a Call Today Trying to Sell Me an Extended Warranty for a Car

The lady asked me what kind of car I had. I told her, "first, I'm gonna need to know what color panties you're wearing, and a little about your grooming habits in that area, since we're giving each other personal information."

She hung up. WTF? Maybe I really did want to participate in her scam!

I tell the telemarketers that I am going to masturbate through the duration of the phone call then ask if they are o.k. with that. Usually never get a call back.

I absolutely said that. If anyone was to sue, it should be me, for them calling me illegally. The problem is, even if you act interested, when you try to find out the name and location of their business so you can have them served, they get suspicious and hang up They know not to give out any info, but they expect random people to give up THEIR info.

I love getting the Indian scammers. I get indignant, and tell them, how dare you, a dalit, call me and tell them they should be scrubbing toilets, etc.

It's apparently one of the most offensive insults to Indian folks, and it usually just leaves them speechless for a few seconds.

Why is it we feel that we should be civil towards criminals? They know they are breaking the law by calling cell phones, or calling land lines on the no call list. They are criminals, and we should be treating them as such.

Edit: I'm always polite to charity callers and pollsters. I respect that they're just doing their (legal) jobs. I have no respect for people doing illegal stuff though.

I like to speak to them in a nonsensical made-up foreign language.

Thank you so much I have been getting calls from there claiming to be from social security. It worked like a charm. I think I just ruined his day.
