    The last time one of them called I let my granny answer the phone.. She spoke to the girl for about 10 minutes and it was the girl who quitted the call
    That's the end of that!

        That is pretty interesting... I'd do it just to see if they would answer all the questions...

            Better Idea, pick up, say hello, play some music for them.

              It's more fun to play with them, just put on an accent and have some fun

                The ones that annoy me are the automated ones

                The people, you can politely tell them to cease and desist from calling your number, with minimal use of swear words

                  Usually I just say something random, like "Hello, city morgue: You sack 'em, we pack 'em." I never have had one call me since...

                    Sounds like a good plan, but I'd fail miserably - I'd crack up half-way through

                    So I'd resort to the tried and tested polite telling them where they can put their phone

                        I like playing with telemarketers...Here's some examples:
                        1.
                        Telemarketer: Hello. I'm-
                        Me: Oh, hello operator!
                        Telemarketer: No, I'm-
                        Me: Give me number 9!
                        Telemarketer: What? I-
                        Me: And if you disconnect me
                        Telemarketer: Why would I discon-
                        Me: I'll cut off your-
                        Telemarketer: *Hangs Up*

                        2.
                        Telemarketer: Hello. I'm calling to offer you a time share
                        Me: I'm very happy with my long distance company, thank you very much
                        Telemarketer: What?
                        Me: I'm going to hang up now
                        Me: *Hangs up*

                          I always ask them to contact me in braille because I am deaf.
                          Then they ask me why braille if I am deaf.
                          Then I just idle a long time.
                          And they hang up.
