    Okay, telemarketers call my house all the time. Annoying. One day a friend was over. He answers the crisis line as a part time job. A telemarketer calls the house, he picks it up without hesitation. This is what I hear. " South plains crisis line are you having suicidal or homicidal thoughts?... Are you having sucidal or homicidal thoughts?... No sir we recently changed our number I don't know who had the number before us... Are you suicidal?... Are you homicidal?... Thank you have a nice day." LOL they never called again

    Subscribe your # to donotcall.gov that is what I did. And calls were reduced to almost none, once you've subscribed you can report incoming call from marketing numbers to them(donotcall) and they will take action.

    When my kids couldnt really talk well i would just hand the phone to them. 18 month old kids love to talk to telemarketers.

    Even they always ask for your parents because they can't talk with minors just tell them you're under 18 YO, that will work or just pay for privacy number(this function do not show your number on yellow or white pages) because they always sell your number to telemarketing company, that's true believe me. I've had that problem.

    Good luck

    My cousin had a telemarketer calling his cell and one time when they called his friends started yelling about burying a body and blood being everywhere etc. They didn't call him again either lol

    I do this too!!!

    Was at the inlaws (FIL always has good comebacks so I'm stealing a few) they asked for him and FIL: He just died. Telemarketer: Oh I am so sorry I will call back later. Really??? and talk to who???

    Another time TM: We are doing an ag survery. FIL : x amount of cattle x amount of sheep.....(finally got fed up) TM: How many poultry FIL: 20 roosters and 1 hen TM: that seems like an odd amount FIL: gotta keep the old girl happy...it was classic.

    My brother answers the phone with "Jacks Mule Barn, head mule speaking". And he yells it, which makes it even funnier.
