    I this sounds nasty but I act like I am sitting on the toilet trying to force out a big one. And when they say I can call back later I just say no I am almost done. Everything I say to them is in a strained voice. Sometimes I even act like I am in the middle of whoppie. Anything to make them feel uncomfortable.

    I got rid of my land line for that reason. I only have my cell now, sure cuts down on them calling.

    Now, if I can just figure out those bill collectors, LMAO. They just wont believe that the check is in the mail anymore. hehehe

    I just ask them for their home phone number, ask them what time they eat, and tell them I'll call them back.

    Tea congress just passed a law that will now allow bill collectors to use your cell number to contact you along with telemarketers.

    When you get one of those calls, just say, can you hang on a minute, then lay the phone down and walk of.

    Come back in about 5 minutes and hang it up. They will have given up waiting for you to return, by then...

    OR,

    Just say, welcome to Taco Bell, can i take your order????
