    Bloody telemarketers

    Now I know that these people are "only doing a job" but I'm sick & tired of these arseholes ringing me, you answer the phone & they blah blah on for 2 frigen minutes before they get to the reason they are interrupting your dinner
    my wife is far to nice & has to repeatedly say she isn't interested before they take the hint, I on the other hand just tell em to stop wasting my time & to bugger off

    but this arvo was the final straw, I was cleaning my bike in the garage & some silly bitch rings up from some farken insurance place, I say do you know what today is & she replies yes & I'm rostered to work today in an arseholey tone, so I communicated my displeasure on them trying to pedal their shit on Anzac day, What a pack of wankers
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    I had one call us a month or two ago,

    He said because we were on the internet or computer had been put as risk of such and such bug and there new super duper software program would fix all our needs......

    he went on and on and I played along with him...... I even asked if my online porn collection would be still ok and what about my bank details, can yoy protect them for me to...

    He sounded real happy and yes yes we can do all that. My misses was sitting there pissing herself but I kept up with him.


    In the end I asked him what I should do because I dont have a computer and the phone went beep beep beep beep beep beep...... the prick hung up on me.
    If its guns, tits or tyres it's going to cost you lots of money

    I miss those calls crzyman, I haven't had one for about six months. I managed to drag the last one out for 35min. How can I better that if they don't call? I think it is good sport when you know they are paying the toll fees.

    They'll just be ringing via skype - so they miss out on toll fees. Of course, wasting their time is valuable in itself, as it prevents them from stinging someone else.

    Last time I had one ring, I answered the phone with a loud, cheerful "HELLO!". After the scammer said their first sentence, I said "HELLO!" and so on....

    They gave up and hung up pretty quickly.

    From seeing a comedy show a while back I got my opportunity to really set up some poor sod.
    Phone rings with caller ID showing a million digits. I answer but don't say my name. The chap on the other end asks if this is Mr Keen Fella. I reply with "he can't talk right now but I will need to know who you are".
    After a slight pause the caller asks why I need to know his name. I explain that I'm in the police homicide investigation team, investigating the homicide of Mr Keen Fella. As I result to you phoning you are now a person of interest to the case so I need to discuss your relationship with the deceased. While the poor guy on the phone stuttered his way through his response I would muffle the phone and say in the background "have we traced this number yet....we have a suspect.......get a squad car there now"
    In a he'll of a panic the guy finally hung up.
    Well after being inundated with calls for a long time we haven't had one in ages. I kinda look forward to the next call now.

    Whats worse is door to door sales men. A little while back they were coming round with annoying regularity, they all spoke pigeon English. Last one I had was a hot French tourist trying to sell me paintings. "Come in" I said

    A story about cold calling on the building site and a car pulls up the drive a very tidy blonde hopped out - caught my attention .... Came inside I had my ear muffs on and after decades of swinging a hammer the hearing isn't what it should be anyway she asks me if I need a builders mate .....
    Stunned silence from me because she was dressed to kill and the thought crossed my mind that she was on the game and touting for business....
    I think she read my puzzled look and offered her business card oh said I a Builders Maid .... cleaning services
