You should have said, "Well, YOU found me."

I just say, "She's not here." Period. Leaves 'em guessing. They always hang up.

Unfortunately, boB, that doesnt work if you are a business and you already do business with them and theyre contacting you to UPSELL you, or calling from another tiny little division of their monolithic corporation. A certain phone company, for instance.

Deb, I just did my Girl Scout duty. Can I interest you in a magazine subscription?

I've found the following line worked wonders: "Oh, thank GOODNESS .. I thought you were another one of those BILL COLLECTORS who keep calling me ALL the time!!!"

It worked until we went on the no-call list, and now "Just wanted to let you know you WILL BE reported to the FCC for violating US Federal laws..." does the same thing.

San Diego Momma

What can you do about those annoying Girl Scouts?

Anything?

If not, please send me your phone number so my daughter can contact you.
