Honestly, I just hang up. If I gave them each 5 minutes...an hour a day would be eaten up. So I just hang up. I don't even say anything before I hang up.
Is it rude? I don't care.
Once in a blue moon, someone gets me on the phone, and talks like a person....and so I listen for a minute.
When you guys get these calls, do you offer an excuse to get off the phone? Yell at them? Listen to them?
My wife still politely will get me on the phone, because she can't be impolite, it's not in her DNA. She'll even pull me from writing up a sale...if they ask for me by name.
I love her dearly, but I wish she wouldn't do that.
Anyway, how do you guys respond to calls like this?
