    I would if I had stairs!

    Ask them, "What if the company building blows up? Will I get my money back?". They would get a kick out of that!

    If they are trying to sell windows or siding,ask if you have to have to ask your landlord. They will hang right up.
    I also like to tell them that I used to have their product and got rid of it cuz I hated it.

    Having a loud whistle that you can blow in their ear is always a nice touch.

    Thank God I live in HK... telemarketers and phone surveys are rare here.

    I've only come across one every 3 weeks or even month(s)...
    I got one yesterday... Without my British Ax I wouldn't of been able to do this:
    Telemarketer: Hello! Would you like American Ginseng (In bad chinese)
    Me: Speak in English please...
    Telemarketer: Hello! Would you like American Ginseng... I imported this the other day I looked at it in my homeland (US) and *blah blah blah*- it comes with a free tin of green tea... Is this Simon Cox? (Bad question... the Telemarketer is American...
    Me: Cox? You pathetic prank calling fool. The name's Cowell....
    Telemarketer: AHHHHHHH *hangs up*
    Thank god my first name is Simon...

    The other time around I was at work 2 years ago and I was messing around with machine voice software... The cops came round but I got rid of the stuff on time to have the poor survey man got arrested.
    Survey boy: Hello is this Simon Cox and you are 22 and this is your personal hotline at HK Golden Fortune Commercial vehicle rental Co, LTD....*more personal info*
    Me:*Pushes machine voice stuff* Welcome to the secretive assasination hotline. To murder someone with a gun please press one... etc the surveyer called the police but I convinced him to arrest the surveyer lol

    Other language works greatly
    When they speak in Chinese I usually reply back to them in Japanese so they start talking in English and I just say I don't understand English

    Well we still have to give props to these people who does these calls I means it's a pretty tough job

    These posts are a hoot! I'm gonna try the "foreign language" approach...I can say about 5 offensive things in Polish.

    Usually when they call and ask for a man or "the man of the house", I (being female) like to say "Yes, this is he." Or, when they say ... "[t]his is (name) from (company) calling. How are you today?" I'll say "I'm very well, thanks for asking. Bu-bye!"

    I also have done this in the past, When they ask "how are you today"? I go through things like this:Well I started out ok but then I got one hell of a headache,then my dog died and I had to bury him and to top it all off I started my period! I am so glad that you called because I have had nobody to talk to. That usually get's a response like.... Well, I seem to have called at a bad time,maybe I should call you later. They never do
