This Has to be The Best Way to Deal With Telemarketers Ever

If you are anything like me, you will have suffered at the hands of a telemarketer. Calling up to ask if you want insurance or have solar panels fitted to your house. We would all like to tell them where to go but in the end, we just politely tell them we are not interested and finish the call.

Not in the case of this guy who has a slightly different way of handling things. This is brilliant.

... that's a pretty good angle. I create contacts in my Contacts list titled DoNotAnswer and add _a, _b, _c et... for subsequent lists. Each listing holds up to seven numbers, I'm on "DoNotAnswer_i". Works great on pesky relatives too, .
