You'll make a killing if you work for a phone sex company. You've obviously got the skills. Just make sure to list this on your résumé. Your interviewers will be impressed.
I agree with #25. I've worked in a call center and had someone pull this crap on me while I was still in training. Though they made it painfully obvious about a minute into the call. I was able to flag down a supervisor and they yelled at the sicko and he hung up. But he called back at least three more times that day. He got the guy next to me twice and hung up on him both times. ^_^ It just pisses me off that when you're being harassed like that you can't hang up.
I'm not 100% sure about that #32/25, at least not in the UK: a) Ever used Orange customer service? It's terrible - my brother tried changing tariffs and was forced to pay for his supposedly free top-up rewards; when we phoned in to get it sorted we were told about 3 weeks later that he had to activate them online - which was said nowhere on the actual online page. Apparently it was on the help/support page, the problem being that we clearly didn't think there was any help or support needed. When we eventually got put through to someone who spoke English, he said "I haven't got time for this" and hung up. (Needless to say we all use giffgaff now.) b) My other example is a teacher at my school, who tries to get cold callers to hang up on him - he signed up for some solar power thing years ago, so deserved the calls he was getting, put seeing as he's from the West Country tells them he's already got solar heating on his roof: take off the roof, the sun comes in, and you feel warm! Sorry about the paragraphs, but I hope you get my drift.
