what I do is this, first I ask if this is being recorded> they say yes. 2. then I ask if they called me. they say yes.... then it is on, if female I start asking about the color of their panties, do they suck dick etc. if male, I ask if they suck cock.
NOW, if they called me it is one hundred percent ok to say that . if you called them ,it is illegal. they usually hang up pretty fast

Wow, devildogdad! I usually stop after asking them what they're wearing. Or I tell the Indians that I'm glad they called so I can practice speaking my Spanish. (Yes, it confuses them. Que estas usando de ropa?)

That's too simple. If you have a problem with them taking up your time the cure is to spend more time on the phone with them.

Who answers calls from unknown numbers??? I used to tell the haji's a little story about their mama and some pig blood, etc...that would usually get them pretty excited.

When they call and ask for me I just tell them I’m not home. Works most of the time.

An airhorn in the ear works well.

Right out of college I took a job where I did a lot of sales cold calling. About the worst job I ever had. Subsequently I'm pretty nice to them. I just say... not interested and wish them good luck.

When my daughter was around 2 yrs old, I used to hand her the phone and tell her to say Hi to the nice man. You'd hear them tell her to put daddy back on the phone, but she'd just keep saying Hi. They'd hang up eventually.

Don't answer. ANY response gets you more calls. Posted over and over.

Not sure if this is correct but I have heard if everybody would answer and keep them on the line for 15 minutes and then buy nothing, the system would collapse. Might just be BS but kinda makes sense.

Like this. Warning language is a bit saucy at the end.
