When a persistent telemarketer calls you up, the one thing you can do to irritate the person is talk gibberish and at a full speed. This would surely take the caller by surprise and before you know it, the call would be disconnected!
When the telemarketer starts talking about various offers, you can irritate the person by ordering a large pizza with extra toppings! Ask for some ice soda as well and keep on blabbing about it till the telemarketer cuts the line in frustration!
Here’s another funny thing to say to a telemarketer. Interrupt the conversation and ask the caller whether he/she would like to buy some goods instead. Talk about an exotic clothing line you have or the latest in home decor. Sell your ‘products’ to the telemarketer and chances are, you are bound to lose this caller soon!
This is another funny idea to bug telemarketers who chew your brains to no end. The moment a person asks you, ‘Hello! How are you?’, reply saying, ‘I need to tell you about some problems.’ Talk about how your cat is chewing the rug and how the milkman never turns up on time!
Start singing songs possibly in some other language. Better still, you can even make your own compositions!
Talk like a recorded voice mail message. You can pretend to say, ‘I am busy in a meeting right now. Please do not even bother to leave your message after the beep!’ Remember to imitate the beep sound in an exaggerated way.
Ask the telemarketer his/her name and then explain and yell as if the person is your long lost friend. Ask him/her how the person has been and general stuff that will really take the person by surprise.
Ask the telemarketer what he/she is wearing!
You can even tell the caller you are out busy with friends and having dinner. Therefore, you can ask for the caller’s personal number and say, ‘The reason I want your number is simply because I can also call you up whilst you are eating and you can then know the feeling!’
Flirt on the phone! Begin by saying, ‘How about meeting me up personally to explain all this?’ or ask the person, ‘Are you a blonde? I simply love blondes!’
If you feel you are not really cut out for playing jokes on telemarketers then there would be a simple option for blocking such calls, which you can find from your service provider. Even then, you can still use these ideas to have a few good laughs!
