I had a telemarketing job for a few weeks. Hated every second of it! But it made me a tougher person to criticism and made me more respectful toward those annoying calls. Why be nasty to them? They're just doing their job and you could "politely" ask to have your number removed from their list.(:I
Telephones are very intrusive. Loud and annoying and must be dealt with immidiately. If they wanted me to cut them some slack they could email me so I can route them straight to my spam folder. And before I get jumped, I worked as a telemarketer in Boston in the 90's. I caught some hate but I didn't take it personally. I was being paid to do it and the people I worked for and with were pretty great. It was the people I had to call that were the assholes. And I understand completely why.
I know that nobody wants to deal with telemarketers, docbastard, but the people you are talking about are people with families just doing what they most likely have to do because they can't get another job. I doubt anyone's aspiration is to become a telemarketer. What I'm saying is that directing anger at service-level employees who are performing their duties makes everything worse. Hang up, write the company, whatever... I have never been a telemarketer, FYI, but I've worked in inbound call centers for a long time.
That's why they tell you to never mix business with pleasure.
9- I doubt that. You're getting paid. We are just hating you.
