to see if I can actually get the phoneanswerer to orgasm when I tell them my tale of angst and woe.

I should not let daytime tv wind me up.

Good idea.

I once told a power company who'd cold called me that we had hooked up a line to the pylon in our garden so got free electricity. When they asked about gas, I told them I had a mate who worked for Centrica who had organised a free supply.

We used to tell door and window people that the building was about to be demolished (it was). One still asked if they could phone again in 6 month's time... grin

YANBU, one of those scummy firms tried to sue us once. A woman drove her special edition BMW into DH's 1963 crappy little car, her BMW was cronked and his little car had this titchy dent. Anyway her husband went mental about it and said he'd sue. Up come these scummy lawyers saying the car was broken and the woman had had 2 osteopath appointments for pain in her neck.
I just went ballistic at them and said I had chronic pain syndrome and fybromyalgia and they expected me to pay for someone to have 2 bloody appointments for neck pain when I need an appointmant every week just to be able to walk 10 metres... and I also mentioned that the bloke was so horrible to DH in front of so many witnesses that I had the names and addresses of 6 people who were dying to testify it was the woman's fault entirely and frankly I felt I'd sue for harassment by this man to a poor diabled woman like me.

They never phoned back grin

At hard sell aversion techniques.

I quite often tell the wallies that accost me in the supermarket that I stll live with my mom and dad.


And a large round of applause to Miggsie for giving the parasites the grief they deserve.

DH was washing the car one day and a door-to-door sales man asked him if his mum was in!!! He shouted "Muuuuum!" to me, just as I walked out from the back garden. He was pissing his pants, evil bastard!

I tell those hard sell types that I'd love to but, unfortunately, I'm only fifteen. I've never been challenged on it yet, despite it being a blatant lie grin
