ummm, I wokred as a telemarketer for awhile, and I just wanna tell you guys to BE NICE TO THEM, telemarketing pays extremely well. most people that do it are only doing it for a week or 2 as an extra job 'cause they really need the money for something. can't make a payment on something or whatever, so they start as a tleemarketer for a week. they're stressed enough already without people yelling and swearing at them. just remember that they're people to, and they can get ulcers just as easy as you can, try to be polite with them. when one calls me, I just politely ask them to take me off the list and wish them luck with the rest of there shift

Sorry Junior,
Gotta agree with chase, I didn't tell the guy/gal on the phone what job to get, so as my Mom would say...they can go pee up a rope (don't ask me what that means...it's just funny)

BTW - Companies in Canada can get slapped with huge fines if they do not honor their do not call lists.

I agree, I hate them. If they ask if I am home, or if anyone is home I always say no and tell them never to call back and never to contact me again. They always call right when you are eating too, so annoying. [:(!]

I don't get calls often enough to get stressed out about it; maybe once a week or so. I just say "no thanks, not interested". Then I hang up even if they're still talking. They usually don't call back.

The only thing that really pisses me off is is if they call any where between 5pm and 10am. I'll say that I can't talk right now, and ask for their home phone number. When they say they don't want to give it out, I ask "Why, because you don't want anyone bothering you at home?" They say "yes", and I go "Hmmmm, imagine that......" [:D]
