    You are so right, Bucky. If no one answers me after my second hello, I hang up. My husband, however, is like Satchel.

    Wait five seconds and the recorded telemarketer message cuts in. :-p

    I just lay the phone down and let them waste their time like they are wasting mine.

    A friend of mine knew somebody who had been listening to an over-the-phone sales pitch for a vacuum cleaner.
    At one point, the salesman promised that the vacuum cleaner would give him considerable freedom about the house …
    The man responded with, "Freedom? That is a Yang worship word …you shall not speak it!’
    The salesman quickly hung up.
    My friend didn’t say whether the salesman called the local nuthouse…

    To get rid of those “silent” phonecalls, repeatedly tap the hashmark key. It throws you out of the computer’s call queue.

    I don’t think Satchel’s all there, either….

    @Cooncat

    I was wondering if anyone would recognize that reference.
    I bought a book called ’Murphy’s rules … weird rules for strategic simulation games. One of the articles was a list of ways to answer the phone for telemarketers … I can’t remember many of them … only two, actually…
    “Renfield … I told you never to call me in the daytime!’
    “So … you tracked me down .. .too late … I’ve just released Virus X … bwahaha!’
    So … next time you want to get rid of telemarketers …

    It also brings me to remember Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb “Hello, Hello, Is there anybody in there?Just nod if you can here me. Is there anyone home”? So many songs can be thought up for this strip

    Google “Tom Mabe Telemarketer” if you want to hear a really good telemarketer prank.
