When telemarketers call, I do in fact answer. But I don’t talk, I just breathe heavily into the mouthpiece until they feel weird and hang up.
*sigh* Look, this is at least less worse than the invasive “what panties are you wearing” shit some people will pull with telemarketers. But fucking hell, telemarketers are people too, people working a shitty thankless job for shitty pay, probably because they have to and at least it’s sitting down at a desk as opposed to retail. Don’t waste their time. Either don’t answer, or answer and simply politely say “No thank you, please put me on your no-call list” before they even get a chance to launch into their spiel. Or at worst, answer and hang up. Fucking with telemarketers might be funny, but I’ve worked in a call center (thankfully not outbound, but still) and they’re just trying to make a damn living. Can we collectively decide NOT to deliberately make it harder or worse for them?
