I get telemarketer calls alot, I have noticed that there are some where

I answer

There is a pause

Then someones says "Hello" as if I were the one who called them?

So today I decided to act like she had called me

When she said "hello?"

I said "Yes, I was just calling to see if you'd be interested in a pplying for a part-time tjob..."

(That was all that could come out of my mouth, I should have made something funnier, but that is what I said)

She hung up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did telemarketing for a year.

It was such an entertaining job.

I always tell them the person they are calling for is dead. My number is in a no call list though, so I haven't gotten one in a while.

There's a lag in the system.  They don't physically dial the numbers but the computer system does and there is a lag between the time you pick and when they hear you.

I work in call centers and telemarketing. I would put your kids on and have them talk to the people.

I worked at a survey call center after high school. Not selling anything just surveys over the phone. That job was frustrating as hell.
