Do you entertain calls from telemarketers?

Do you continue to listen to pitches by telemarketers or just hang up your phone? There are really good ones who can hook you and make you stay with them and answer their questions. Are you annoyed by these type of callers or do you allow them to talk even if you know you are not going to buy what they are selling? Or do you hang up the phone as soon as they inform you that they are selling you something? Have you ever bought something that telemarketers have offered you?

Hello,piropos,occasionally i received some calls from the telemarketers,i would not blame them becasue it was part of their job responsibilities,i would tell them politely that i was not interested in their services or products,most of the time they could understand and hang up after that. I would not hang up before they tried to offer me something,i would listen to what they were trying to tell me,if I was really interested,i would ask them for more information,i would not hang up at once after i knew they were telemarketers.

I understand what you are feeling when a telemarketer is calling you, I once worked as a telemarketer and It is really challenging that you speak with different types of people. But now I am not working as a telemarketer anymore. Hope you could give considerations to them, If you dont like the product they are selling then refuse to by saying it in a nice way, Its part of their work to call to their clients thats why. That is just my opinion.

If I have the time and I am not busy at that moment, I wouldn't mind to listen on what they have actually to offer. Though I already know beforehand that I am not going to buy/order anything they are going to sell, but let's just say I like to be entertained even for awhile. I rather continue to listen to those telemarketers and not just hang up on them. Of course, I don't give away informations, like real name and addresses. I rather give another name instead. You might not know whom you are really talking too in the end, don't you? He he he. But there are cases where does telemarketers know your name beforehand already and are just trying to sell products or services to use. I don't get annoyed by them. I rather enjoy those type of calls. They are trying very hard to convince you to buy from them. I merely give them a chance to at least try. After all, it is part of their job. A superhero used to say: "with a job like that, comes great convincing power!".
