Today, I picked up on a telemarketer and started speaking in Portuguese. It turns out that this particular telemarketer spoke it as well. Every time I hung up, he called back. Telemarketers get really excited when they find out someone else speaks their language. FML

haha my thoughts exactly!

try English next time he calls, it might throw him off and make him stop calling.

No 16 that doesn't work they will call back and say you speak English perfectly fine or they will talk to you very slowly so you can understand.

what country do Portuguese hate the most ? say you're from there.

just argue their business isn't real for a while... they get really angry :)

The best way I've found to get rid of them is to start breathing really heavily into the receiver and whisper in a creepy voice "I like to watch" they hang up pretty quickly but trying to sell them your couch works equally well. Or if the ask the popular question "are you happy with your phone service?" reply with "no, no I'm not. Half way through a conversation it just..." then hang up.

Lol at 33, he speaks from experience.

aha "vai pro caralho" usually works!!!! lol

no no no all of you are wrong. you tell them you see them or say " i get a bonner everytime we talk" it especially works wen its a girl talking. very very affective

I once gave ten bucks to a police charity telemark. they sold my number to other groups and my phone rang several times a day for years. I turned off the ringer and only responded to the answering machine.

Yeah, but to call back repeatedly just to talk to someone that also speaks Portuguese isn't part of their job.

I used to get like 3 calls a day for a "thomas mcnamer" so I had to change my number

Being treated like shit isn't part of their job either - OP deserved it.

except numbers come up on their screen at random making it impossible to call back. I call fake.

jes1610 6

what exactly did I get modded for? I pointed out a total fact that it's impossible

giantsfan2010 23

Once you call someone their number is stored in the phone. At least that's how my phone works. So they were probably able to call back over and over again.

it shouldn't work like that. I'm pretty sure telemarketers can't choose who they call
