Do you have Pete in a can?

No doubt you’ve gotten 40 million telemarketing calls over the span of a week. When I was younger and still lived with my parents, they got so many a day, that I learned to get creative. But I’d for that time, my best was going off on a guy selling magazine subscriptions, by telling him my dad was blind.

Today, I bow down to the master. Seriously, go read. And don’t fuck with Pete when he’s in a bad mood. Or call his house.

Back when I was in high school I was home a lot so I always answered those phone calls. Finally I just started having fun with them. One called and asked when dad would be home and I simply replied ” well the judge says he’ll be home in 3-5.” the lady goes “uh..ok” *click*. hehe I’m so mean :o )

About a year ago I got a new VTech phone with a built-in TeleZapper. I didn’t think much of it at the time (it was in the sale aisle at WalMart) but now I wouldn’t trade it for anything. We use caller ID to check on the incoming calls; if we don’t know them we let them roll to the answering machine. Since we’ve gotten the TeleZapper, our telemarketing calls have gone from about 50 per week to about 3 per week. Gotta love that!
