Don't you just hate those. It depends on my mood how I respond to those telemarketers. If I am in a bad mood, I ask for the rep's name, company name,call back number,supervisor's name,badge number and how they got my information. After I get something from them I will tell them to take me off there list. and if they call again I will call the BBB and attorney general for harrassment. Or sometimes, I ask them to hold on and just the phone down with the mute button on. Or, I figure, they, like most telemarketers ask at least three times before letting you go. They hate it when you interrupt them, because they read from a script, you could have some fun and just ask them to repeat themselves or just ask a whole bunch of questions while they are talking. Sometimes I just say no and hang up, right off the bat.

Just my thoughts only
