    ffs!!! I spend the day at home and what do i get!

    I am trying to catch up on some paper work today and all I have had all day is people trying to sell me things!!

    From credit cards, to personal security, to windows, to telephone bills.

    I wouldn't mind but I am particular careful who I give this number too, so its not exactly listed for anyone to find it, god knows how they do!

    the last one was a classic!!

    Phone rings, I answer, all I hear is a phone ringing, then they answer and say hello! then I have the following conversation..

    Hello thank you for ringing us today (I didnt ring them)

    My name is Shaun (now I am pretty open minded but I doubt a man in india with a very bad english accent is really called Shaun! )

    How is the weather for you today (I tell him its very cold and snowing)

    He replies:

    yes it is very cold for me as well, I think we will have some snow today also (yeah right )

    then he goes on to tell me about this phone service he wants me to join up to.............................blah blah blah ..............

    Anyhow I tell him no thanks I am not interested whilst trying not to laugh at the fact he is reminding me of Aurpu from the simpsons

    He then starts saying:

    Why wont you listen to the offer, it will save you money and cheaper than BT.

    At this point I can not contain myself and laugh out loud and have to put the phone down



    Sorry for the rant but for gods sake does anyone actually buy from these cold callers? I would imagine they do other wise they wouldnt do it! They are seriously getting on my nerves today!

    These people are SO annoying

    I get these calls all the time, if the phone call is 'International' or 'Withheld' then I answer but keep quiet. Let the call connect then hang up! That way the annoying sods get charged for the call

    There is a number you can call that allows your phone number not to be released, not sure what it is though
