Monday Ha Ha - How to talk to telemarketers

I found this audio clip and it made me laugh so hard I wet my pants. But don't listen if you find profanity objectionable. You have been warned.



I stole this audio clip from my nephew's Facebook site, promised him a tampon shooter in exchange. It's long but funny.

Ello, This is *the most hysterical* youtube I have ever seen!!!!
Oh God, I have to get my children ready for school, but I need to see this again!!!
LOL! Thanks for posting this.
It is appropriately vulgar. ;-)

strugglingwriter said...

Wow. That certainly gets the point across.

I usually go with the "I'm not interested, thank you." followed with a swift hang up, not letting them respond, but his way seems to work too :)

Poor guy. And yet I'm laughing so hard my daughter thinks I'm convulsing.

Good stuff, Ello. :)

Melissa Marsh said...

Hahahahaha!!! I LOVE the second one!

Charles Gramlich said...

Hum, I better wait till I get home from work to listen to this.

This is a hoot. I was once a telemarketer---for about 2 hours. I quit and never even went back to get paid!
Glad to have found your site.

Church Lady said...

Oh man, it's even funnier the second time around (the second clip)

My stomach hurts.

Danette Haworth said...

Oh my gosh! That poor guy on the other end. How funny that someone took the time to format this phone call with a video display!

Akasha Savage said...

Those clips were soooo funny...I was laughing so much I was crying!!

Mary Witzl said...

I give the BT man a lot of credit: he held up well and remained polite! The fellow on the other end was almost certainly gotten out of bed after a long, tiresome shift -- graveyard, I'm guessing. Perhaps for the third or fourth time that day. He sounds a wee bit like a rude version of my father-in-law...

I rarely take the time to listen to clips - but Chris told me to listen to these, so I did.

They're a scream.

We'r eon a do not call list- but we STILL get calls from politcial people and charities and businesses "we have a relationship" with. They all drive me nuts.

The way I see it- the phone is something we pay for - and it's for OUR convenienec - and no one else's. Listening to these calls reminds me of why. That said, I kinda feel sorry for the telemarketer guy trying to make a living - and he must really need the job, as this is such a sucky way to make a living.

Bottom line - we're about to get rid of our land line and use only our cells - which are also on do not call lists. And we're not giving them out to anybody but who we want to. Ever.

Church Lady said...

It's even funnier when you've had some wine.
I think I'm going to puke.
I need a life. I know.

Beth said...

Oh my gosh, I cannot believe how that guy just spazzed right out! I don't generally like telemarketers, but I felt bad for this one.

Beth said...

OK, that second one made me laugh my arse off. That is priceless. Is it real, I mean, for real?

Ello said...

Chris, I'm just as bad. I keep listening to these over and over again myself and howling like a loon. Hey, it makes me feel better!

Robin - I know alot of people who are getting rid of their land lines. The thing with me is I got to have it just in case all other technology fails. Usually in a storm, the only thing working is my landline.

Beth - that second one is by a comedian and he did pull it on a real telemarketer.

Glad everyone else liked it! I'm going to go listen to it again for like the thousandth time.

Wayne said...

Those were better than I have heard in a long time. Fantastic! I'm gonna listen to them again . . .

Patti said...

Thanks for the laugh!
