When telemarketers call you, they have a script to follow. Well, here’s a telemarketing counter-script you can use on them.
A couple of soundbites:
Could you spell your name for me?
Which toothpaste would you recommend?
I can appreciate your concern, Mr./Mrs. … but aren’t you calling me?
They also have a one-page PDF version of the counterscript. Keep copies by your phone!
