So I'm sitting out here in the garage typing away on USMB, and the phone suddenly rings. Looking at the caller ID, I see the call listed as "Private Caller."

I answer the phone with a rather gruff-sounding "WHAT DAMMIT???"

The voice on the other side sounds like a young lady with a mild accent, possibly Indian. She says "Hello, this is AT&T service calling, who am I speaking with?"

I respond with "Hey, wazzup baby! How is you doin' tonight, sweetmeat?"

The bitch hung up on me. :laughing0301:

I get fewer and fewer calls since I started a new tactic. When the unknown caller asks is this hossfly, I hold the phone at arms length and say loudly, "Hey, Bill, tell the sheriff he has a call on line 2. They hang up by the time I put the phone back to my ear. Works every time.

You're far more humane than I, sir. The next call I get at 7 PM, I'm going to say "I bet you have a purdy mouf..."

Or...or..you could just not answer it if you don't know exactly who the number is coming from.
Cool how that works, huh. After a while, coming up with new jokes and reasons to keep people on the phone is...well..boring.

Mang, I get so many calls from bill-collectors, spammers, scammers, and those who would otherwise try to separate me from my money.

Why not have a little fun with them at their own expense?

It's funny you say that because earlier today I read that AT&T was going to call a random customer and give them $100,000,000.

You don't think...? Nah, it couldn't be.

Sure. Just don't answer them unless you want to fuck with them. It's one of life's simple pleasures.
