Me: (I say my company name)
Them: (He asks for my boss)
Me: He's with a patient at the moment. And you'd have to speak to our office manager about changing phone services.
Them: Fine, here's my number.
Me: (mocks writing it down)
Them: And give me your office manager's name.
Me: She doesn't care for it to be given out.
Them: I need her name.
Me: No, she'll call you.
Them: Then how will I know who she is when she calls me back?!
What I'd like to say: Listen smartass, I've had enough of your !
Me: Welllllllll, you asked for my boss, right?
Them: Yes.
Me: Then the office manager will say, I am the office manager of (boss's name)'s business.
Them: *silence*

BOOSH!

I'm on that, but it doesn't always work. Some foreign-based companies still call, and Dish network seems to ignore the list even though they've been fined in the past.

Hah, for a couple of months I have worked at a call centre, although it's incoming-calls taking orders from the US. The hilarious thing is that even we get telemarketers and auto-dialers calling our lines based in the US, despite the fact that the operators of those lines might be in the next office over for all we know.

aren't telemarketers going to be able to call cell phones soon though? I could've swore I heard something about that not too long ago, and to put your cell phone number on some do not call list now before the cell phone numbers are publically released...I cn't remember the exact thing now

I have 5 numbers, all on the Do Not Call list. But that doesn't stop them! I get telemarketing faxes DAILY, no matter how many times I try & get my name removed. A couple of weeks ago I got spam text messages! I tried to respond to tell them to and it bounced back. But I'm still charged for incoming & outgoing texts I do have 1 home line with caller ID, but I still hate seeing "private caller" or "unknown caller", because sometimes they are still friends. We've had a friend call from Australia on several occasions, and we almost didn't answer because of the ID.

My husband finds that this works well in response:

Same for me. I'm surprised that other people get alot of telemarketing calls even when they are on the list. Maybe depending on where you live, you'll have more calls get through. Then again I live in one of the nation's largest telemarketing hubs and don't get calls. Who knows? Complain to your congressman or congresswoman.
