because I donate to politicians we get many calls thru out the year...if I can notice who is calling of course I don't pick up.....but their new trick is to have a non 800 or non 888 number show up so you're never quite sure who is calling....

I don't like being rude but honestly, you end up being rude.....

Things I have done in the past...

1) If you have toddlers, simply hand the phone to them...

2) Pretend you are hard of hearing, and keep asking them to speak louder... when they start yelling ( and the people in the cubes around them get real quiet ) laugh hysterically and hang up.

3) Tell them business hours are monday thru friday, 9 am to 5 pm, and to call you back then.

4) Make up your own language, and speak that language to them.

5) Tell them to speak english, even if they are.

6) Just set the phone down on the counter, and go back every 5 minutes until they hang up.

these will at least allow you to have a little fun

Someone interrupts YOUR life by calling YOUR phone, on YOUR line, in YOUR home, on YOUR time, to do THEIR business and YOU are worried about being rude?!?!?!
