That's why you shouldn't lie!
There is no need to lie. Just call someone to add the number to the blocked list or do it yourself if your house phone can block numbers. I know cellphones can. I have a huge list. I usually say fuck you never call again because idc and then I block the number. No i don't say that, but I should. What braindead people waste their time on calling people who either don't even answer the phone because it is nobody important or just want to say fuck you? >.>
Well the telemarketers are probably not too happy with their jobs, and would take any opportunity to quit when they can. But sitting there getting paid for calling random people just to be hung up on.. hey , free money. Some may even be professionals at it making tons of money.. It's just marketing.
The people who do it a majority of the time are the people who get paid to do so. Its a soul sucking brain dead awful job to boot. I did it for a month, but it paid the rent and I'd still choose that over being homeless any day. Even if it means 10 hours of ass hats who can't just say "Thanks, not interested" and hang up but instead have to scream and tirade at you. Actually since most of those jobs have a quota requirement, its better if your not interested to politely hang up than listen to their spiel anyway.
I don't understand why people don't just tell them to take their phone number off their list. Listen to them once, and never again. (: If they call you again from the same company after you ask to be taken off, you are allowed to sue them. Although sueing them isn't an answer, it'll keep them away from you at the very least.
@57 & 53, I get like 35-45 calls a day & 15-30 new voicemails on my house phone daily because Verizon lists my number and wants to charge me not to do so. I've tried telling them not to call, that the number is a lucrative hotline and they are being billed by the minute and their phone bill would have a very descriptive charge...but it kinda backfired, & I hung up on some of the men who called. Answering as a suicide hotline and saying I was tracing their call to send someone over got a few idiots to stop, but now I just recorded a super long message saying the number isn't in service & giving a legit suicide hotline number. Now I only have like 15-30 messages from machine voices sometimes the same one 10 times in 4 minutes. The funny thing is that the debt collectors aren't even looking for me. No matter how many times I told them I'm not Andrew Goodall, David Smith, or Charlene Bowen, they don't stop. If my mom didn't occasionally call if I left my cell phone in another room, I'd unhook the annoying thing. Verizon says it's cheaper to have all 3 services than just 2, so I'm paying to be harassed. Is that no soliciting thing a 1 time fee, or monthly? And how much is it? Sigh, I may just unplug the darn thing since I don't use it...
See that's why it helps to know an indigenous language.
Why didn't you just hang up instantly like a normal person?
