Years ago, and even today, I always had fun with telemarketers. If they would call the shop, I'd tell'em, "Wait just a sec, I need to shut the welder off...." then go back and hang the phone up in 10 or 15 minutes. My parents hated this, but they realized how effective it was, as within a month or 2 the number of calls from telemarketers really declined. This was a long time before the "do not call" thing.

Another good one is to answer and then act like you are mentally challenged. Alter your voice a little, tell them "This is Roscoe!" and proceed to say when they have asked for "Joe" or "Al" ..."He ain't here. He's up at Flossie's gettin' a rub and tug!"

Now we get calls from call centers in the Philippines. I can tell from their voice if they are Filipino, and if it's a girl, I begin to lay the smooth talk on her in Tagalog. Some of them will squeal if you ask if they are wearing underwear, or what color it is. Or I ask, "Is this Rose?" There is always a Rose, or a Jinkee, or a Grace. A real good way to get them to hang up is to ask them if they used to work on Fields Avenue in Angeles City. Tell them you remember them from Gilley's Roadhouse, or the Blue Nile, or the VooDoo. Pretty soon the calls dwindle. Too much fun! And Old Dog is right....they called YOU.

This wasn't as much fun as you two had, but a rancher here would
listen to thier spiel, then when they were done, he'd say, "I'll
give you my address for you to send the check."

That would stump them and then they'd of course say,
"what check"? To which he would reply, "well, you got paid
for talking to me, now I want paid for listening to you.
Fair's, fair, right?"

That usually caused the telemarketer to hang up. :D

My SIL's grandma got such a call once that said "How are you Mrs ___?" She was very serious as she replied "I'm glad you asked," then launched into her aches & pains until they hung up on her!
