1. If they say they’re John Doe from XYZ Company, ask them to spell everything,

Over and over and over.

2. Say “no” over and over. Be sure to vary the sound of each one, and keep a

rhytmic tempo, even as they are trying to speak. This is most fun if you can do

it until they hang up.

3. If MCI calls trying to get you to sign up for the Family and Friends Plan,

reply, in as sinister voice as you can, “I don’t have any friends, would you be

my friend?”

4. If they start out with, “How are you today?” say, “I’m so glad you asked,

because no one these days seems to care, and I have all these problems. My

arthritis is acting up, my eyelashes are sore, my dog has the gout…”

5. Ask them to repeat everything they say several times.

6. Insist that the caller is really you buddy Leon, playing a joke. “Come on,

Leon, cut it out! Seriously, Leon, how’s your momma?”

7. Tell them you are hard of hearing and that they need to speak up …

louder … louder …

8. When the salesperson asks, “Is this the homeowner?” say, “Is this the

salesperson?” and when they say, “Yes,” hang up.

9. Simply ask them to hold for a minute and leave them on hold or just put the

phone down until they go away.
