Coldcalling bastards. I got three of the suckers yesterday, but nowadays I'm about as happy to waste their time as they like to waste mine: I simply answer their initial "greeting" and put the handset down besides the phone. (another way of sucking their time is to interject "please hold a second" and then putting down the handset, works about as well.)


About two or three minutes later they've usually given up givin their spiel to thin air and I hang up. That at least gives me the illusion of them losing valuable time for other coldcalls and thus tones down my murderous anger about those assholes^W^W^W^W^W^W^W^Wmakes me happy.
