So, im sitting here checking my email today when I get a call from Nevada...i'm in Orlando btw. Been getting missed calls from this number lately so I decide to see who the fuck keeps calling me. Turns out its a telemarketer, about my credit cards. Wants to give me 4 porn magazine subscriptions as long as I pay for ESPN or something. Before I tell him I dont want this shit, he asks me what i'm "into" and tells me im in a drawing for $25k.

Him:...Guns?
Me: Yes, I like to build and shoot rifles.
Him: Oh, you mean for a living..?
Me: No, for fun.
Him: Oh, well...well, when I was a kid...I used to go to my uncle's farm. He used to make his own shotguns shells filled with dynamite.
Me: Oh yeah?
Him: Yeah, we would shoot them over herds of animals, and get them to where to wanted to go.
Me: Hmm, sounds reasonable
Him: What uh, kinda guns?
Me: Mostly just the AK47 platform....
Him:..........
Me: And I dont want you to send me anything. I dont want your magazines.
Him: Then what is your purpose of signing up, if you dont want the magazines?
Me: I dunno


LOL, Damn telemarketers calling my cell phone. Im gonna start using soundboards on these asswipes. They called me for the same thing when I was at a Semper Fi Society meeting...I told them no then too, mostly because the Cindy sounded like a dude, kinda freakd me out

They called your sell phone? Get all their information, then tell them it's a cell phone and you'll be reporting them to the FCC. It's against the law to call a cell like that.

Why did you enter the drawing and give them your cell phone number?

I didnt, the CC company gave them my info. I was kinda confused, what they were doing. They entered me, and called trying to get me to pay for magazines.

my friends dad ( if he has nothing better to do ) will sit on the line with the telemarketers and ask stupid questions for 15 minutes then go, "ah, i changed my mind... CLICK" and hang up on them. if they want to waste his time, he'll waste theirs.

i've begun trying to sell them things. It's way more fun.

them: "would you like 125 channels of satellite TV?"
me: "would you like a full featured website with content management system?"

prolly dinosaurs. we used to herd dynosaurs with shotgun shells filled with dynomite when i was a youngster..

btw.. i love telemarketers. when they call, i make up languages and speak in tongues. the longer i can keep them on the phone the better. scores negative points for them since they are rated on call times divided by successful calls. sometimes i record the jiberish dialog for posterity...
