Phone cold calling
I mean - us getting them - not us making them!    A few months back I had a guy calling me about hearing loss in the work place (if you are hard of hearing, please don't take offence at my reaction - I'm just fed up with them calling).   This is how the conversation went:   Me: Hello Man: Hello, is that Mrs D? Me: Yes Man: Hello Mrs D, I'm calling on behalf of (company - can't remember the name), have you suffered any hearing loss in the past 2 years due to working in a noisy environment. Me: pardon Man: [repeats same question] Me: Pardon? Man: [repeats same question again] this goes on for a couple more times Me: I'm sorry I can't quite hear you Man: Would you like me to call you back on a quieter line? Me: No thanks, I'm not interested [hangs up]   I don't think he quite got what I was doing (and he was a Brit). I know it seems cruel to do that, but I'm fed up with them calling!   I threatened to sue a company for harrassment after they called me 5 times in one day to try and sell me blinds. They had called every day for I don't know how long! I haven't heard from them since!    I have said that my phone number has been outsourced to Mumbai and they would have to call that number to get hold of me!    Another thing I've done is answered the phone with   Me: "Bonjour!" Them: Hi can we speak to Mrs D please? Me - Je ne comprend pas, je ne parle pas anglais, je parles francais, j'ai desolé, au revoir [hangs up]  Not sure if my French is that good, but I make sure they don't get a word in!   BTW I have caller display so I know whether to waffle in pigeon French or not!    Anyone else have any creative ways of dealing with cold callers?
