Don't like telemarketers. You love this....
This is priceless...You'll find some excellent defensive tactics here, assuming you have good improv skills.

That was fracking hilarious!"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

That is beautiful. Good find.If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

His best prank, IMHO, was when he booked a room at a hotel that had a tele-marketer conference. The calls made a 3AM were priceless "collecting donations for tele-marketers with insominia".-------------------

definitely a great way to deal with a telemarketer!!!If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

My late Mother was real good at nailing telemarketers before they knew what hit them. Her favorite:
TM - "Hi Mrs Woods, I'm calling to offer............"
MOM - "Quick, give me your home phone number........"
TM - "Uhhh, what.........??"
MOM - "I'm too busy to talk now, but I'll call you back tonight....."
TM - "Ma'am, I'm sorry, but I don't handle business from my home phone......"
MOM - "And just what makes you think I do??..........." BAM!! goes the phone.......Never use Force! Get a Bigger Hammer.

If I know it's a telemarketer of any sort, I usually answer the phone when they pickup with,
"911 What is your emergency?"
Then when they get scared they called an emergency line, they get the riot act about taking up valuable time of the phone operator (me! )Originally Posted by ThNozzleMan
