    Re: Spam?

    Haven't had to deal with collectors in years, but like to mess with sales people!! I let them get all the way through their spiel then give em bogus info, or just talk like I've got brain damage or something, & let em think they got the sale locked up then come off with something like "I gotta ask my social worker" etc. My best is to act like I'm hard of hearing! It's fun to keep em repreating themselves 4 or 5 times & yelling. Then after 10 or 20 minutes tell em I'm not interested.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....

    There was a time when I hated phone solicitations, but anymore I sit back and have all the fun I can for as long as it last.

    I hear that! I almost regret getting on the no call list, used to look at em as recreation. They're all on commission so I figure the longer they're tied up by me the further they are from eating steak instead of Kraft mac & cheese.

    Re: Spam?

    About a year ago, I wrote a post on how to stop junk mail from credit card companies.... My advise was to take their return envelope and stuff it with news clipping's, coupons, and any other paper you want to get rid of..

    Credit card company's have all lost my address

    FOr the phone calls, I would handle them 2 ways..

    1- Ask what the person is wearing, then say that sounds really hot.
    2- Once they introduce themselves, I tell them I have new socks, and keep repeating it

    Have fun, it's your time, their dime

    It works

    I like your socks ramble! That probably shakes em up good! I can just picture the guys face!

    Haven't seen as many in recent years, but I had removed a section of wall in the yard that was those red bricks. Every time I got one of those offers with the postage paid envelopes, I'd wrap a brick in a piece of paper grocery bag tape the envelope on it & send it back! Wish I could take credit for this idea but it came from a friend that worked at the post office. The company got charged for the extra weight of the brick. The really cool thing was I didn't have to haul any bricks to the dump.

    Thanks to spammers, I've recently learned that I now have huge fortunes waiting for me in Nigeria, the U.K., Africa, and Spain!

    UPS keeps sending me about an un delivered package

    Oh! Boogeyman..

    GE hasn't called back fer a while... last time they called, I told them I already have a home security system.. He asked what company.. I told him the security Co. name was Springfield.. He said he never heard of it before.. Then I said Really, You never heard of a 45.. He then got a little lippy.. So I then told him he could come try out my Security system Anytime.. He hasn't called back yet.. Maybe he doesn't trust their work..

    Re: Spam?

    Apparently spammers are really going covert these days. Today my mail said I had 6 messages in my spam folder, but when I opened my spam folder there was only five. Evidentally, "subliminal spam" is their newest high tech method.

    Haven't had spam in like 5 years! Got a can and put the key away so no one would steal it! Never was able to get it unlocked.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!
