  • I am polite, but if they then become rude when I decline I will not be nice. I have had solicitors call for donations and I will say "no I can't at this time" and one time the person got rude and said "why not, you can't even contribute 15.00, what's 15.00" I don't feel then need to be nice to those callers.

  • I am nice the first few times, but if a company continues to call after I have told them I am not interested I am no longer so friendly.

  • It depends on what time it is. If it is after bedtime for the kids (8:00), I am not friendly.

  • I don't answer the phone unless I know the name and number on my caller ID. So I don't speak to them at all.

  • I am polite at first but if they persist, I cut them off, tell them to take me off the call list, and hang up.

  • I am nice simply because they are people who are just trying to make money like the rest of us. However, when they start to become too pushy, I remain polite but will be firm with them on my answer. Now my husband is another story! He has answered the phone before and when he realized it was a soliciter he started yelling "oh my God I won! I WON! What's my prize??!" The poor guy on the other end didn't know what to do!!!! It was horrible but I laughed til I about peed my pants!!!
