Shopping mall canvassers
« on: March 08, 2014, 04:18:24 AM »
If there is one thing I can't stand are these aggressive losers.

Yesterday 'Save the Children' were out en masse.
I was approached 4 times in less than 5 mins, I always acknowledge them but keep on walking.

#1 "Would you like to help save the children?"
My reply, "I've alresdy got 6 of my own that I'm trying to save"

#2 (with outstretched hand) "Hi, what's your name?"
My reply, "It dosen't matter"

#3 "Hi, how many kids do you have?"
reply, "6"
#3 reply "dude you've got 6 kids?"
which he then shouted across the way to his buddy "Dude he's got 6 kids"

#4 basically same as #1.

I think I was  being more humorus than rude. Though I don't really care.
I realise they r doing their job and get refusals all day long, I was trying to inject a laugh.

I like to have my fun with telemarketers . I immediately change the subject and tell them in my most exaggerated masculine voice that I'm at home alone sitting in my recliner in my wife's bra and panties and ask what they are wearing . They simply hang up every time .

I am telling you my method of dealing with telemarketers is far more efficient that the national do not call list . I have not had one single repeat call from any company that I have creeped out . I have had them ignore me when I ask to be taken off the list but the Merv the perv routine works like a charm every time .
