Adler is fourth-degree criminal mischief and assault.

CtrlAltDelete, couldn't have said it better. I was a telemarketer once, and I wanted to punch myself in the face for doing it even though it was for a month.

A couple guys showed up last night to sell me windows. I opened the storm door and spoke through the screen door. My dog went nuts barking, and I held her collar like she was a vicious beast. I told them to leave the flier on the door because I wasn't opening it.

Sure, she only wanted to give kisses, but they don't need to know that.

Most of the time I don't even answer when I'm home alone. I let her bark at the door. Works on kids too.

I hate Telemarketers. I wanna prank them for hours... in my basement.

Punch the execs in the face instead, not the rank-and-file.

Unfortunately the ones who should be punched in the face are not the ones working the phones

I did it for a year. I coped by drinking heavily on a near constant basis.

Unfortunately, he wound up punching someone completely unrelated to telemarketing.

/and yeah, who the hell proofread this article?
 
2009-10-13 9:30:06 AM  
Adding "in the face" to the end any violent action statement makes it seem so much more funny to me. Sometimes merely getting punched/shot/stabbed doesn't accurately describe the anger involved. It has to happen to the face.

They're the ones bothering people. Hence, the anger is toward them.

Good for him .. HERO tag all the way.
I watched the Video segment about this. Apparently Mr. Adler has a temper from the "He's nice if your on his good side". But from he was telling the reporters who were harassing him while he was working in his yard, he sounds like someone who doesn't like being harassed.

(And yeah I think reporters are useless bags of hot-air).

Again good for him - HERO tag

fark this thread. I'm resurrecting YESTERDAY'S EPIC WIN California thread:

capturedforlife: Ladynocturne,

Lived in Salinas for 20 years. Been to King City too many times. It does approach the suck factor but
lacks volume with it's small population. I favored larger cities of suck.

What about all of the Morans that walk around with "Hollister" T-Shirts? What a dumpster dive that place is!

I worked for 4 weeks in a temp job (between when I graduated from college to the time my training class for my new job started) doing outgoing calls for a surveying company. Our list was for people who had signed up to have us call to see if they were interested in taste-testing various foods.

People still screamed at us pretty frequently.

If by telemarketer you mean 3 year old...count me in!

I wish there was someway to punch them through the phone.
 
2009-10-13 9:39:58 AM  
Let's place the blame where it belongs... on the idiots that actually buy the crap these losers sell over the phone. If everyone just hung up these jobs would not exist.

I would like to get a hold of some of those 'chump lists' and visit each person on it with a sack of doorknobs.

If only there was some sort of service where you could see the number of whoever was calling you and decide whether or not you want to answer ...

In a related story, the ringing of the telephone is not a holy command.

Just be sure to sell them one of the doorknobs before you hit them over the head with the rest.

It's my telephone. In my house. I decide who gets to ring the bell on it.

Years ago, I was living in an apartment. This was before caller id, call block, etc. Had some moron call and ask me if I wanted new windows. I said, "Sure. Can you guys do roofs and siding?" "Uh..yea..." "When can you come out?" So I scheduled the "appointment" for a time that I would not be home.

Good idea (As long as I don't have to listen to them ramble on about nonsense for an hour first).

If only they would try to sell us stuff we really need; like rubber nipples for instance.

I've worked as a telemarketer before (getting a kick, blah blah blah), and all I can say is that they have much to blame as well.

You get payed not just for the number of calls, but for how much the cient orders, so they'll bust you open a good one for that. The most common tactic is the suck-up, and/or lying about the credit in such a way that a lawsuit is nearly impossible (the heavy use of 'may', 'could', and 'it probably will' is a common here when referring to the money withdrawn from the credit card).

You don't think much in the wee hours of the morning, these guys know it and they'l exploit it downright.

OMG! 27 years ago I lived in a crappy little rented apartment in an even crappier complex. I told this siding company that would not stop pestering me to come out and give me an estimate. The really stoo-pid part came when the same company called me a couple of days later to "reschedule" since I didn't "appear to be home" when they arrived for the first appointment! I was tempted to go for it but I told the salesman to call and ask my landlord for permission to re-side my apartment. They never called again.
