Re: Harassing phone calls
I am home all day and some days the phone rings every 15 minutes - Rogers, RBC, vacation resellers, Disney, etc, etc. I rarely answer the phone - even if its someone I like! I have often asked to be removed from their lists, but they usually go back to calling after a couple of weeks. So, now, I just waste their time!
An effective method of handling these calls is to spend about 10 minutes stringing them along. Ask lots of questions, seem hesitant but interested, get everything from them you can. Then, after you've wasted a significant amount of their revenure generating time, tell them that you have ZERO interest and they should stop calling. Once they realize that YOU are prepared to waste THEIR time, they will remove you from their list forever!
