    The other day I was home from work and I swear this guy kept calling, the first time he called I answered and said "no sorry this is not a business", then not 10 mins later Im out at the line and I hear the phone so a race inside but the machine gets it, ITS THE SAME GUY!!! He talks to my machine for a bit and hangs up. Im left thinking WTF?? maybe he didn realise he was calling the same number. So I leave it and ten mins later another call comes through, I ignore it and when the machine picks up ITS HIM AGAIN!!! He does his little speal and hangs up. This happened another three times!! then that afternoon the phone rings I answer it and ITS HIM AGAIN, Im like "what did you have an extended lunch? having a bludge day or do you just like my answering machine?? This is NOT a business STOP CALLING" not two mins later I get another call from a chick from the same company!! I tell her that I am not a business, yes this is Ashaari Kennels, No that is not a business, yes I am sure, No it is a hobby kennel, Thank you goodbye!... funny enough they didnt call back

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!

    I love the ones offering you "free holidays"
    They start out by saying "Hello, this is Sanji from Queeens-Lande" or the ever popular "Sidenay" it takes me a few minutes to decipher what they are trying to say then I just say "sorry, not interested" and hang up.

    I don;t mind giving spare change to charities, or a 5-10 dollar note. But these days that is just not enough... now you have to give minimum $5 a month for 12 months.

    I had a guy knock on my door a while back for a charity building wells or something in Africa. I got my wallet out to give him some cash and he said he couldn't accept it, they needed my bank details...

    Sorry, not gonna happen!

    I had to laugh one day a few years ago; I was on reception at work and this telemarketer called asking to speak to the owner of the business. Welllll I work with a government department


    A while ago now, johovas knocked on the door - Taya was so ferocious and scary that one of the ladies stepped away from the door, a tad frightened lol . Maybe I should keep her tied up at the front door

    That is atrocious and goes totally against every teaching any Johovah Witness learns. Shame you didn't get her name, cause if you did and rang the local Kingdom Hall, that news would daresay not be taken lightly!

    That's absolutely disgusting that she could have said that to you Laura!

    It's not great for attracting the ever-loving "positive Karma", but I just can't help messing with telemarketers.

    (As it's just me and Mr Pinkest in the house, our phone social life is entering it's twilight, so I can do this!)

    me - "Hello"
    them - "Hello, is this Mr Pinkest" (when a woman has clearly answered the phone??)
    me - "puts phone down on bench" (but doesn't hang up) and "goes on with life"
    them - cannot make a phonecall on that line until I hang up and close the connection. They are also paying phone rates from India, so sad!




    For DTDS, a quick "oh go AWAY! you know we can't keep seeing each other, my parole office hates unprotected sales calls!" generally scares them enough that they will stand out on thefootpath and discuss the nutter inside for a good half hour!

    AS for SDA-ists - the last time I had them come to the door, they were so polite until I told them I was so glad that they accepted the Jewish faith these days... she went white, he backed away slowly, and then stuttered apologies for disturbing me - haven't been back since!
