Arumat: GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: *fog horn*
"This is your captain speaking. You have chosen to receive a free cruise to Nassau, Bahamas."

I hate these farking bastards so much. I've asked to be removed from their call lists 3 times now. I guess next time I get the call I'll get a person on the line so I can threaten them with a harassment suit.


Remember, the magic legal words you need to use are "put me on your do not call list" or "add this number to your do not call list".  They're under no legal obligation to remove your number from any list, ever, but they're obligated to maintain a do not call list.  The difference is splitting hairs, but legally significant.

My favorite automated ones are:

1. "We have important information about your credit card."
I don't have any credit cards, numbnuts!

2. "You have a call, please wait on the line for the next available representative."
What? You called me to put me on hold?!

3. "You may be able to save big on your heating bill. Please stay on the line."
Then they come on with a live person, who in about 5 seconds determines that I don't qualify.
