    They pissed me off just enough today to start sending them my junk in the mail. For the past two weeks, Stonebridge Life Insurance has been calling me damn near every morning. I have asked to be removed from their call list at least 5 times and they are still calling me! I have been extremely nice about his in the past and have begged for them to just stop calling. I lost it with the dumb ditch today after i found out that they are affiliated with cap one and that I would continue to recieve important offers from them over the phone. I just talked to them yesterday and told them to stop calling me! Assholes! I wanna strangle someone! Guess I will just send them my dog poo, oily clothing, cat litter and any perishable garbage I deem stinky enough. I would never even consider doing this normally but those fuggers are too much! I mean, I get at least a couple of offers a month from them a nd I already have their ****ty card!

    Put lead shot or sand in the envelope, they pay based on weight. If you put something like dog crap in it, the PO will consider it hazerdous.

    Just load up on all your junk mail in their envelopes and send it back keeps the post office busy so stamps cost less. I would be carefull with the sand idea its a good idea but make sure someone doesn't think its anthrax or something.

    Do what I did with Crapital One. Get another credit card and balance transfer , then close Crapital One's card. Then NEVER do business with them again and tell your friends too.

    tell them that you had your number ported to a cell and that they are calling your cell phone making illegal sales calls to a cell phone. i used to get like 20 calls a week when i had a home phone. then when i moved i had my number ported to my cell phone and when they called i just simply told them do you know your calling a cell phone number? no well this is my cell number and you are illegally calling me. i now get like one every few months

    If you have caller ID call them back. Or get into really long annoying and confusing conversations with them. Ask them for their names. they will eventually put you on a list of some sort. They rarely call me anymore.

    Barter. If they offer some insurance for $100 a month say if they make it an even $10 you will do it. They will say no, so you offer $10.50. They are not supposed to hang up until you actually say no. Or you can read them PBB chit chat posts.

    Theres a comedian who jerks around phone sales reps, Jim Florentine, his best is the one where he tells the rep he needs to talk because he only has a few weeks to live. I was laughing so hard I almost had an accident.

    That whole do not call list thing only applies to residencies, not businesses. Where I used to work we got telemarketer calls all the time and when my boss was there he would always tell me I had a phone call and make me jerk them around. I got prety good at it, too bad I dont get those calls anymore.

    You guys think you have it bad. I run an answering service and I have about twenty phone lines. The best is when five ring at once you know its a telemarketer, or a computer.

    i was thinking of that, but that wasn't who came to mine, i was thinking of Tom Maybe (may-b)

    there was one where he said that he was about to kill him self and that call was a sign from god to stop, and the guy kept trying to sell a cemetary burial plot. funny as hell.

    you could always try something like that, just record it and make some money off them.:wink1:

    next time they call, crank the volume on a porn and put the phone down. Just keeping doing it everytime they call.

    Or my favourite is learn mary had a little lamb on the phone pad and play it everytime they call. They get the hint quick.

    This one just occured to me, its sick I know.
    Phone rings....and I answer hello
    tm; Hi I just called today to talk to you about.......
    me: Oh thank god, I need a second opinion here. I have to get a colonoscopy tomorrow and the doctor said I have to drink this stuff called golightly. Its to clean me out, so they don't have to work around any.....umm stuff in there, you follow. So anyway I have this date tonight with this chick and she is so hot she's smoking. I mean she's so hot I haven't made up my mind which condoms to use, what ones do you like, ribbed or plain...think color is any sexier?
    telemarketer Uhh sir I called today to offer you a deal on, I cut right back in and interrupt
    Me I can't bring her back to my house and say we are going to have a great time and then go s**t my brains out. I'm not even sure what kind of food I should eat tonight when we're at Taco Bell. Think I should stay away from anything very solid, you know go with something soft and squishy.

    Think this could get me hung up on?
    George
