  • Rule #9 - Never go anywhere without a knife.
Why do I carry a 45 ?
Because they don't make a 46 !

Tom Mabe is hilarious.

I usually just set the phone down & let them talk to dead air until they hang up & I hear the off-the-hook signal.

Next time that they call here are some funny ideas. 


Tell them that you were just about to commit suicide and just as you squeezed the trigger, the phone rang causing you to flinch and missyour target and now you owe them (not the good oweing either) for saving your life.

Ask for their number so you can call them back.

Answer in the voice of the opposite sex and say that you have changed you name and sex recently.

 Keep telling them to hold on for a second.  Yell out in the room "quick hide the body" or "cant you cut em up any smaller" you know, body disposal workspeak.

That is all that I can think of at this point.

I have an uncle that suposedly would pretend to be hard of hearing and wait for them to run through their whole bit and then ask them to repeat it, and kept it up till the other guy hangs up :o

My roommate used to do that. 

Sometimes he'd motion for me to follow him to the toilet while I was on the phone with a sales call & then he'd get a mouthful of water & act like he threw up into the toilet.

He also used to speak back in a fake foreign voice sometimes as if he didn't know English.

Once I was in bed with a girlfriend & answered a sales call.  One moan from her & a "Tom, come back to bed" in a sexy voice got rid of that salesperson.

The salesperson was a little embarrassed - to say the least.

You mean they have some feelings?

One of my personal favorites for getting rid of telemarketers was to tell them that I am taking a dump an make a few straining noises and the like.
