Ok, all you smarties out there, I need your help. I want a list of good kiss-offs for telemarketers and why they work. I'll step up and start the party:
"He's/she's dead." Ok, it's morbid. But it works. Why? Telemarketers remove you from the list because it wastes their time to recall you and it's illegal to sell a marketing list to another firm if they know it contains names of the deceased. (Not that we expect them to be ethical.) I'm currently in the process of field testing this one.
