I received a call from Mike Wilson, a very American sounding name with a terrible foreign accent. I was chosen to receive a grant of $8,500 just for being a good guy. I am really starting to like Mike Wilson. After listening to his bs for a few minutes he asked how I would like to receive my money, credit card, debit card, government payment card, or wired into a bank account. I said just mail me a check. Oh no can do! I then informed him that I don’t trust banks or credit cards and that we keep all our money in a mattress and mailing the check would be best. He then goes ha, ha, ha, you can expect your money and then hung up on me. :wtf:

I scared the 'bejesus' out of one lady telemarketer. I let her talk for a minute and then I asked her "what she would say if I told her I was a federal agent and she had just called a highly restricted phone number"? She started stammering and I said "I need to know your full name and the name of who you work for". She gave me her first name and said she wasn't allowed to give me anymore info. I said "that's ok, the trace went thru, we'll be there shortly.........don't leave". She hung up :D

I was getting daily calls wanting me to have a FREE alarm system. Finally I talked to them, when they asked if I owned or rented I said I owned my tent but not the land. That seemed to go over their head, but a few minutes later they asked again. Again I said I own the tent, not the land, then started telling them what a great tent it was, and I found some old pallets and made a real wood floor and how I.... CLICK. They never called again.

As we have listed our house and been pre-approved for a loan, I am getting calls like crazy. Every state in the union is coming up on my cell phone. Just amazing. Within one DAY the company we currently have a mortgage with found out and called twice, 2 different people. Very annoying.

Turning the tables of a telemarketer - wonderful. ;)

Knowing they have to spend the rest of their work day sitting in a wet seat and then drive home in wet clothes - priceless ! :D
