I'm home alone, and the phone rings. I was in the middle of something and it was like 10:30 P.M. and my parents were out. I ran to the phone, and answered. The guy goes 'Hi, I am with Specialty Travels and we would like to speak with Jim (My Dad's Name)'

I told him that he wasn't home, and then he goes "I know this is Jim, so why don't you just drop the act and talk to me" I told him that he was gone, and the guy got very angry. "Jim, why don't you want to talk to me! *awkward pause* I will talk to Jim soon." Then all I hear is the blank tone of a hungup phone.

Wtf?

I was a telemarketer (well, kind of) a few summers ago, but I think I was more afraid of the people I called than they were of me.

Hmm well this didn't happen to me but a guy I know was home alone, and the phone rings. He was in the middle of something and it was like 10:30 P.M. and his parents were out. He ran to the phone, and answered. The guy goes 'Hi, I am with Specialty Travels and we would like to speak with Jim (His Dad's Name)'

He told him that he wasn't home, and then he goes "I know this is Jim, so why don't you just drop the act and talk to me" He told him that he was gone, and the guy got very angry.

Wtf?

that might be a sign that you and your dad sound alike. wierd...
you should call that guy back and apologize. maybe he's a long lost friend trying to make up for something. try to make it the most awkward call ever

these wierd asians keep calling and pronouncing our last name wrong. but that's about it

Earlier today a telemarketer called and said "Hi, this is ___ from ____ can I speak with [insert fathers name]?"

me: "No."

her: "Thank you, have a nice day *hangs up*"
Me: *puzzled look on face*
#6

wtf?

I do not sound like my father, he sounds like an old man with a ****ing kangaroo in his throat.

a friend of mine received a call from a non-english speaking person, well... they could kinda speak english, but not very well.
Every time they tried to sell him something he said "No you're not"
the call went for about 10 minutes, and all he said was "No you're not" even if it didn't fit, it was freaken hilarious!! cos the poor girl had no idea what was going on, but was still trying to sell him sh!t!!
"If you buy with us now, I can also throw in this free weekend holiday!"
"no you're not" *pause*
"and i can also do <this>"
"no you're not" *pause*
gold!!

What you have to do is start up a conversation like he's an old friend.


"Hi, this is Kevin from ____. May i speak with the owner of the household?"
"DUDE! Kev!! How you been? Got any ass lately?"

Me: Sure.
*click*

Telemarketer: Hello, is this Steve Bothwell (mispronounces last name horribly)?
Me: He's out at the moment, can I ask who's calling?
Telemarketer: [long pause] Hello, Mr. Bothwell, I'm calling to see if you're interested in discounted...
Me: No, I don't think you understand. He's not in.
Telemarketer: [long pause] Hello, Mr. Bothwell, I'm calling to see if you're interested in...

I start speaking in French, so then they get a translator, and then I start speaking in English again. Then, I cue my brother to pick up the other phone and scream 'THERE'S A BOMB UNDER YOUR SEAT!' and then we both hang up.

One time when I was in college I owned American Express about 6 grand. they called and I said he was dead and they never called back. I did get letters addressed to "The Estate of SenorSmiley" trying to collect but I never had to pay.

I was surprised it worked.

How the heck can you be scared of those people?

Whenever someone calls and its a telemarketer they use my dad's real name so I can pick them out, and then I just mess with them.

Be creative and try to get them mixed up, its really fun.

this reminds me. One time I got a call on my cell phone from an unknown number, then they pronounced my name wrong, so i started beaking them, talking very rudely, until they told me I won 200 bucks in a raffle for my hockey tournament...turns out it was true and I felt bad
