|Too soon old, |
too late smart
I’ve been getting a rash of calls supposedly about some sort of wonderful medicare coverage.
Usually it’s a Robert or Alan with a heavy accent and curry on his breath.
Just saying not interested hasn’t fazed them.
Now, I ask them, “What country are you calling from?”
The last two calls yesterday ended abruptly; one with a click and the other with an “F you, MFer.”
I know it was only two calls, but, by gum, the results were satisfying. YMMV
Me: "What are you wearing? Do you have underwear on? What color is it?"
Him: "I will come there and fuck your mother."
Me: "OK, are you bringing ice cream?"

I call them a banchode and hang up.
I do have a problem with them. I started a thread about how they are ruining our phone system. Somebody came in and said that all will be better or good in just a few days. Some law or ruling by someone will cure it all by saying phone companies will or are supposed to make sure they aren't spoofing numbers. Well, if that requires voluntary compliance by the "Bells", it was doomed to failure. The local phone companies are a huge part of the problem.
It seems we did have South Central Bell years ago, but the evil Cincinnati Bell bought them out and now its not worth a shit. Now I understand a Canadian company owns them/us. I've resisted dumping the land line because we've only had it since maybe 1974.
So far I've not found a solution to the scam callers. I do enjoy hearing others attempts, but I've tried so many and none have worked. None will work until Congress gets serious, but they won't because they want to give away more national debt. I've considered several solutions, the best so far is make my phone a toll call. If you call me, you've got to deposit a dime in my account. I'd give half of it to the Bell, or all of it as a credit against my phone bill.
I can't for the life of me figure out why some idiot in another country, on another continent thinks I'm going to do business with him/her. After all, they start the conversation or try to with a lie. Dealing with liars is a non-starter.

I enjoy telling them that my friend in Pakistan with ISI is going to visit them.
I quickly tell them that I work for the State Police and that I am coming for them personally before they can hang up. hehehe.. drill sgt.
Port your landline to google voice. Then disconnect landline. Keep giving out landline as contact number. Use cell. Save money
It depends on who calls on the line I give them...
I'm from the Social Security office; "Well that's interesting, I work for the Social Security Administration as well and this is the first I've heard of this. What department and office do you work at and please give me your badge number so I can get this sorted out"...Click
I'm from the IRS and you owe us money; "I know I do; I know I owe you $413,000 and that's why you should call my tax attorney. His number is 800-829-1040 (it's actually the local number for the IRS) and he can explain to you my agreement with the Federal authorities about turning myself in to serve my sentence. By the way, can I have your Federal ID number so I can ask the judge why I'm being harassed by the IRS"...Click
Money may not buy happiness...but it will certainly buy a better brand of misery
A man should acknowledge his losses just as gracefully as he celebrates his victories
Remember, in politics it's not who you know...it's what you know about who you know
|I Am The Walrus|
I ask them if they’re wearing clothes and that they’re turning me on.
Typical response is: fuck you, muddafucka!!!
I don't have time for bullshit games . I just say " Not interested " . Click ...
I don't answer if it's not in my address book.
"Yidn, shreibt un fershreibt"
"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."
I practice my Slovak on them. My Slovak probably sucks balls but they have no idea what the fuck I am saying. All they know is the fucker they are calling is not talking the language they expected and they ultimately realize there is no way to ply their scam, after it wastes their time.
I punch whatever button you need to get a person, then mute the phone, put it on speaker and listen. They usually hang up after a few "hello's" but I like wasting a little bit of their time.
|Just Hanging Around|
If you have an iPhone, turn on Silence Unknown Callers. If the caller is in your contacts, it will ring through. If not, it goes to voicemail. If it’s important, they’ll leave a message.
Very seldom do they ever leave a message.
|Void Where Prohibited|
I don't answer calls from numbers I don't know, period.
If it's a legitimate call, they'll leave a message.
That way, I never have to play games with those jerks.

I play along and give "my name"

Strangely they hang up after that
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

What he said.
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy." Winston Churchill
^ & ^^^ Exactly like I do it.

This makes me smile and laugh.
Answer the call then put your phone on MUTE. They can't leave a message that way and will then hang up. After they hang up, block the number.
