    I have time on my hands watching tv.

    I basically pretend to walk through the steps of downloading team viewer (which is legite software I fix my dads computer with it once a month). Play it out for awhile and then tell the guy I am getting a strange error message. When he ask what it is I tell him it keeps telling me that you suck donkey dick or something of the sorts. They get mad when you waste a half hour of their time especially when they think they have a fish on the hook.

    I love it!! Those guys deserve every bad thing that life throws their way. I absolutely detest thieves and rip-off artists; there is not a hell that is macabre enough for these sub-humans. Rant over.................

    Yes, if you have time, play with them. And eat up their time. Scum.

    I used to drag this out as long as possible but now just hit them with 'dude, you gotta get a better job'. Surprisingly - or maybe not - that stops the hustle dead in its tracks. Know the character, Apu, from the Simpsons? I do a pretty good job with that accent (what is it...Indian, Pakistani?) and used to use it on the unsolicited Microsoft Service calls. I never got a reaction from them. Then again, you'd be talking to a guy named 'Dean' in Florida with this accent, and you're claiming to be 'Dave'. Anyway, I figure they took the risk of calling so I have some moral obligation to keep both of us entertained for a short period of time.

    I got the call on sunday, he wanted me to run to my computer but i told him I'm watching television, he got mad and told me it's real important, I told him how important TV is to me since I got HD, rambled on about the great picture, etc, he asked if he could call back and I said sure, in about 4 hours, he finally told me that my computer will stop working in 24 hours if he doesn't fix it - I told him i dont really need the computer now that I have such a good TV. It was fun, wasted a good 10 min of his time.

    I did ask him if he's in india(they all are), he insisted he's in the US, said his name was something like Jerry from maryland, they're not even good liars.

    The best response I have ever received from a telemarketer (after keeping her on the line for well over 20 minutes) was:

    "Sir, if I could call you an asshole I would, but I can't - Click".

    It was the best laugh I ever had from a "telemarketing" phone call. :haha:
