    Fun with telemarketers

    Even though we are on the "do not call" list we still get the credit card calls.
    The other day I decided to have some fun.

    Phone rings, I pick it up and say, "Hello"
    A recording comes on and a woman says, "Hello, we are calling you today to let you know that you can lower your credit card interest . . . blah . . . blah . . . .blah. . . press 1 now to speak to one of our representative."
    I pressed 1
    A man comes on:"Hello, my name is Mark. Does your household have over $3000 in credit card debt?"
    I said, "What?"
    He said, "Do you have over $3000 in credit card debt?"
    I said, "Whaaat? I can't hear you."
    He said, "DO YOU HAVE OVER $3000 IN CREDIT CARD DEBT?"
    I said, "3000 calico cats? No I don't have any cats of any kind, I'm allergic. Why would anyone have..."
    click, he hung up on me. Rather rude, I'd say, after all, I was just getting started......
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    ROFL!! A woman after my own heart!! That was perfect!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!

    Maybe that will work for those political robo calls I am beginning to receive.

    That is a good one. Another one is tell them to "hold on a minute" Then put the phone down and walk away.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    DH answers in a made up "foreign" language - complete jibberish. They don't last long.

    I've told them that they have to talk to the dog...she makes all the decisions. I don't understand why...but they hang up.

    My hubby asks if he can call them back later, preferably when they are home & eating dinner.
