You know what really ticks me off? The calls that don't come through. I get more of those than live telemarketers. The phone rings, I pick up, say hello, and nobody is there. Which is also how I know live telemarketers before they speak, because there is always that PAUSE....CLICK before they pick up.

Argh. My college roomie had someone try to sell her car insurance. When she informed them that she didn't OWN A CAR, they kept on going saying that she needed it for driving other people's cars. I think they finally hung up when she suggested she could get a car through theft...and if they would insure it.
