I can see I haven't been very creative. I usually just hang up on them. I think I'll try some of these ideas and maybe get a laugh or two out of it.

Many years ago I received one for new siding and windows. I just went into fake crying and said my husband left me, I have all these children and have had to go on welfare. But my windows are drafty and the children are sick. Do they think welfare would pay for the new windows?

They dont stay on the phone long after hearing that.

Oh, life's to short NOT to indulge in a little fun w/TM's, especially after I usually break my neck running in to answer the phone!

HAHAHAHAHA sounds like something my DH would do- He loves to mess with telemarketers especially since we are on the Do not call list. When he gets them on his cell phone, he tells them he's not into porn and they best hang up before he calls the porn police on them .. OH lordy .. You should some of the reactions when we are out in public .. funny, but not, wait yes funny...

That is wonderful! I do "Can you hold for just a minute?" then lay the phone down, like Tink's Mom. This would waste even more of their time!

Hahaha. I love doing things like that. Depends on the mood I'm in to what attitude they get. The last one called as someone was at the door so I put the phone down by my dogs barking. After they were done barking there was nobody there. Imagine that. hehe.
