    I've started having fun with cold-callers now. I like to come up with stupid problems that will stop me buying their products. They then try to rush off, which is a bit cheeky really :)

    @ Mark, reminds me of an old but goody prank call : http://www.blog.joelx.com/entertaining-prank-call/859/

    What I like to do is ask the salesperson for their phone number so I can hassle them when they're at home

    We get loads at work - so we ask the caller for their credit card details so that we can charge them for our time

    The easiest way of dealing with them is say can you hold a second i have to answer the door or something and just leave them there and put the phone on the table or something i had one wait a good 10 mins once before hanging up

    @Stevie, even better if you make noises like you are being murdered or attacked after answering the door.
