If I remember, Lizzy wrote something similar before. Are you here? Hello?... Anyway, how do you handle them? The telemarketers? But whatever your way is, be gentle to them if they are not rude. They are merely doing their job.
My replies to them revolves around these variance,
"I'm not interested."
Being annoyed. If they're too
"I'm. Not. Interested."
"One of your colleague called me [insert period of date / time] ago. Please refer to him / her."
"I'm not comfy in doing any sales through the phone. If I'm interested, I'll walk straight to the counter myself."
And, an experience,
"Wait, wait, wait. Before you go any further, I want you to know I was once in telesales before. I know how all these work... I'm not interested. But thanks for the effort."
Yes. I was one before.
More to come.
