Telemarketing Calls - Newspaper/Magazine Subscriptions
Posted on 03/10/2007 11:03:29 PM PST by rm3friskerFTN
Instead of hanging up on a telemarketer trying to sell you a subscription to the local newspaper, let them know what you think of the local newspaper.
Tell the telemarketer that you will not subscribe because the newspaper is on the side of the homophobic, anti woman, anti free speech Islamic Terrorists who wish to force free people to blah blah blah
Be creative. Catalog the defeatist attitude of the media in general. Mention the Mil Bloggers. Mention the failure of the media to report the good news from Iraq & Afghanistan, etc etc etc
Keep it funny, keep it polite, keep it focused on how defeat in Iraq & Afghanistan will mean the murder of homosexuals, lesbians, single mothers, atheists, pagans, and other pet causes of liberals.
Peace through superior firepower AND CREATIVE HUMOR

The telemarketer doesn't have any personal connection or concern about the product or publication they are selling. I assure you they hate it far more than you do. A few years ago I worked as a telemarketer Sept. through January and I learned a lot. I was selling magazine subscriptions.
#1 and this is off your subject but I while I braced myself to be cussed out constantly I was amazed that I NEVER was. People would get rid of me but were never crude.
#2 - For Pete's sakes sales are the telemarketer's money and they are human beings. Please if you don't want what they offer just say no thanks and hang up or just hang up quick so they can get to the next person. I got out of that job as soon as I could. Believe me most telemarketers hate calling you as much as you despise the intrusion at your home. You may look down on that job, just be grateful you have a better one.
I always tell them I read one last year.
