Stig, that is from the Bob and Tom Radio show on Q-95 in Indianapolis.....they are a comedy icon in these parts.


That is just what telemarketers deserve....especially when they call a dead mans house.

wow! I can't imagine how much more effective this tactic would be rather than " please take me off of your calling list". I bet he would make it onto the " never under any circumstances call this number again!" list

Caller ID and an answering machine works wonders in filtering calls.
If I don't recognize the number, it never gets answered.

In the beginning of telemarketing I wasn't used to hanging up on people so felt obligated to not only respond but also end the call 'nicely'. No longer the case. I just hang up and don't give it another thought.
