Sex is a waste of time too but it sure feels good.
I had a 10 x 14 bunkhouse I stayed in at the farm on weekends. The
phone rang in the barn one rainy Saturday morning. Vinyl siding
saleslady. Not able to do much work outside, I thought I would waste
her time by toying with her for a while.
Told her my name was Ronald Reagan, like the President, and I was hard
of hearing. She had to shout every word repeatedly. Asked her where
she was calling from and what's the weather like there.I sure was
interested in siding and gave her the size of my house, 10 x14. I
didn't have any money, could I pay it out? Gave her directions from
town. You do know where Brushy Knob is on the way to Turkey Trot don't
She took all that down and turned me over to her supervisor who
confirmed the info and made an appointment. I then told him I didn't
like telemarketers and didn't even have a house here and had been
wasting their time.
Next Saturday morning, a fellow in a suit got out of his shiny 300ZX
with a lost look. I waited out in the corral and made him walk through
the manure out to me. Certain he was at the wrong place because there
was no house, he asked if I knew me. He kept looking back at his car
as the sheep gathered round and my dog pissed on his wheel. If I
hadn't been busy, I would have had him measure the bunkhouse and the
I told him how I had screwed with the telemarketers and had told them
it was a joke. He wasn't happy. He had driven 70 miles to slam dunk a
deal with this old deaf codger.
Half hour of my time versus a half day of his. Hell yes, it felt good.

Snort! ROTFLMAO! Good one!
Track down two CD's by Tom Mabe:
"Revenge on the Telemarketers"
"Revenge on the Telemarketers, Round Two"
Both are recordings he made of his conversations with telemarketers.
