What can I say?
Here is the thing. I hate telemarketers. You hate telemarketers. We all hate telemarketers.
We have been receiving two phonecalls, per day, from two different telemarketing companies. One is for an extended warranty for our vehicle and the other is for life insurance. They always begin with a recorded message. You are given the option to press "2" to remove yourself from the call list. I tried this for the first week.
They still kept calling.
Then I decided to press "1" and ask a live person to remove our phone number. They would always agree and then call me back the next day.
Okay that wasn't working.
Then I decided to tell the car warranty people I had a 2010 Denali and didn't need an extended warranty. They would thank me, hang up and then call back the next day. !?! Same with the insurance people. I would tell them that we had great insurance with an incredibly low rate, could they beat it? They would say no, thank me and still call the next day.
This went on for three weeks.
One day I became so fed up with answering the phone for these doorknobs that I decided to try a new tactic.
I pressed "1" and as soon as the agent was on the line I screamed as loud as I absolutely could into the phone. Then I hung up.
It only took me three tries with the warranty people before they stopped completely. The insurance company must've been enjoying it because those masochists lasted a whole week before they were done.
I have to say tho' you have to try it. It works.
Just remember to warn the family before you do it. [Learned THAT lesson the hard way ;) ]
