Attention Telemarketers

I have instructed my children to tell you that yes, their mother is home, but unfortunately she only speaks the African clicking language. If you still insist on talking to me, I will get on the phone and click at you until you hang up.

Excellent technique.

I hadn't thought of that. Good idea!

My solution has been to just talk to them in Spanish. How about using your French. Which would be a great way for you and the girls to practice your French :-)

I began explaining that we had already expended our charitable-giving budget for the year and the bastards hung up on me. That's right! A charity HUNG UP ON ME! What's the world coming to? They also like to explain in painstaking detail that the federal do-not-call list does not apply to charities. I tell them, I know, I'm the lawyer. You are right. Think I'm going to donate now? How does it feel to be right...and broke? They are probably former AIG execs.
