"You are a murderer, you are a life destroyer!"

Did I really hear her compare his call to rape? This woman will die early if she doesn't learn to calmy say "No thank you" and hang up.

You are a terrorist... Oh no not that one again. *rolleyes*

I think the woman needs heavy psychiatric treatment and get doctor prescriptions i.e. many pills that will make her so trippy she'll sleep for the rest of her life and only eat take-out that can be slipped through the mail slot in her door. That's the only way to protect humankind.

And how can that poor guy just take it in like that? After that call he must have resigned.

Come to think of it, she makes me think of a member I knew in a forum I used to go a few years ago...

This is true. I learned it from a telephone operator who knew my sister-in-law. It worked for me, but I have only needed it once or twice so far.
What you do is when you see a telemarketer phone number on caller ID, pick up the phone and don't even breath, do not make any noise or sound, just press the #sign 5 times in a row and hang up. Remember press # 5 times and hang up. Even if you feel like screeming, don't, it will work against you. I did this and then kept track of the phone numbers I used to see, and after a few times, they all disappeared. It does work after one time, but I think it takes a few days to get it off the data base, so you may get a couple more phone calls from the same number. If you get a different phone call, then you have to do the same all over again for each number that you want to get rid of. I have another way of getting rid of telemarketers: When I answer and they ask for my name I say calmly "I am not interested in anything you have to say." If they insist that I need to know, then I say "If you think it is that important, put it in writing and mail it to me." You know, by law, once you tell them not to call, they cannot call. Some of these companies have mailed me letters telling me that they respect my wishes of privacy and blah, blah, blah. Whatever, I don't get any calls from them anymore. When they ask for my husband, I tell them that I make all the decisions regarding phone account, credit card account, etc. and I tell them that they need to deal with me and that's the end of it. Try it, it works very well.

This sounds much more reasonable than the show that woman was putting on.

I know telemarketers are despicable but you don't have to behave like a raving lunatic like that woman did.

I will try your tricks, johntalin! Thanks or the info!

"I'm going to call the cops!" Saying this LONG after saying that the cops are on the line... I love how the telemarketer reacts to everything, just "Ok." and "I hope they play this tape in court someday. [laughs]."

Has anyone ever died from telemarketing? And is it possible for anyone to be audited every year? How could one rape someone through telemarketing?

"i was an emt people died because answering machine was full" - People did not die because her answering machine was full, people died because she did not answer her phone... and in my town we use plectrons and radios not phones.

That woman is totally amazing, I would like to know who the "we" are that she kept mentioning.

That telemarketer deserves a raise for having to endure her.

The best part was when she called him a terrorist and a racist and the guy says woah...racist is a pretty strong word.

This is woman is crazier than the crazy christian woman from Trading Spouses.
