    I just got one of those fun telemarketing calls.... I got a lady on the line and she started talking with some heavy accent, and I kept saying "I can't understand you, can you please speak clear English."

    She finally said something that sounded like "We're looking for 16 people for a death reduction program."

    I said, "I don't want to die or have anything to do with 16 people dying."

    She said, "not it's a national death program to help people in death."

    I said, "I'm not dying nor do I hope to die for a long time."

    "No sir, it is a death assistance program."

    "I'm not planning on killing myself. I don't want to die!"

    "No, no sir, we help you with your death."

    "Are you threatening to kill me?"

    "No sir, we want to help with your DEATH."

    "I'm calling the FBI if you are threatening to kill me; you sick person should be in jail."

    "No sir, D-E-B-T."

    "Oh, I owe a friend $20, other than that I have no DEBT; which is why the government is stealing my money and giving it to people who screwed up."

    I'm getting to enjoy working from home and telemarketers.... How long before the do-not-call list takes away from fun?

    I think you have too much time on your hands, you should take up a hobby, like target shooting or something.

    Funny stuff, I usually like to mess with them as well. I once kept a sears home improvement guy talking for 20 minutes on the benefits of vinyl siding, boy was he pissed when I told him I was a tenant not an owner.

    At work this morning everybody was busy and the phone was ringing so I picked it up(I am not usually near a phone at work) it was one of those recordings saying my factory vehicle warrenty was expiring. The guys who was sitting behind me hates getting phone calls so I told him he had a call on my extension. He hung up a few seconds latter called me an ass and went back to work(he was laughing)[rofl]. I love doing shit like that.

    that's pretty funny! When my dad was dying of cancer, he would often mess with the telemarkets for kicks. He had the most fun with the American cancer society telling them he had plenty...they still wanted his money!
