PTers Have So Much Integrity

telemarketers.jpg

Written By ScrewU

Here’s a goodie showing us the character of the women at Pink Truth.  While they complain about the lies that were told to them by others, they gleefully share the lies that they tell to telemarketers.  I completely understand being frustrated by annoying calls from people that don’t want to take no for an answer or barely speak english.  What I don’t understand is why they think that they can be rude and distruthful to others while expecting to be treated better?  Are they better than those people?  Better grab a cup of joe… it’s a long one

I’m learning that saying “no” without excuses or reservations is a learned art.  I get plenty of practice when someone comes to the door selling lawn care, home security systems, or pizza coupons.  Here’s my two cents that can be applied to YOUR next MK grilling!

“Hello, are you the woman of the house?  I’m with Nastypan Pizza House and we’re offering a book of coupons for a reduced price.”

1.  Respond with a smile and a direct look into their eye, and a cheery, polite, “No thank you.”

“But these can be used for the rest of the year and you’ll save a hundred dollars!”

2.  Repeat #1.

Normally twice is enough to send them on their way.  But about 1/2 the time you will get an individual who will ask you, “Can I ask you why?”  I find this to be a new thing – it takes a lot of gall to ask someone why they decided what they did, IMHO.

So I just tell them the truth.  “I wasn’t interested before you came here.  I mean, Nastypan pizza hasn’t entered my mind all week; heck bro, I’m too busy thinking about the cat yack I have to go sponge off of the basement carpet.”

One lawn care guy tried the guilt trip:  “You’re not interested?  Well then, what about those weeds on the side of your house over there?”  (There was like, three weeds the size of a GI Joe action figure near the water meter).

“I’ll hit those for free with the Weed-B-Gone this week,” I replied, ever so cheerfully.

I believe politeness and a bit of humor is the key to a graceful exit on both fronts.  Wink

Maybe this isn’t the right thing to do, but if I were pestered for a name and phone number, I would tell them that my name is Jenny and my number is 867-5309.

If you are of a certain age, you would recognize that name and number because it was mentioned in a song by Tommy Tutone!

What’s really funny about that is that there’s a plumbing company in Dallas with that number…except their number is a toll-free number 1.866.867.5309. They actually used a small re-write of the Tommy Tutone song for their jingle.

I must be showing my age if I remember that tune!  There is also a song that mentions BE4-5789, which translates into Beachwood 4-5789.  That song came out way before my time, as people didn’t say telephone numbers like that when I was younger.  Nowadays they would say 234-5789.

This post might be considered to be just a tad morbid but it had proved to be a quite effective technique to make those annoying telemarketing people go away!

I found this out purely by accident and it works EXTREMELY well; it makes them hang up in a quick hurry (which I consider to be a good thing) since they do not want to offend you as a potential client in any way.

My mom passed away a few years ago and during the couple of days that I was still here before I left for Dallas to attend her funeral I’d answer the phone (since we were making a lot of funeral arrangements) and occasionally there would be a telemarketer on the line instead of my brother or sister.  Well, I wanted to get them off the line quickly and figured that honesty might serve me well in this instance (“my mom just died, we’re making funeral arrangements, you’re tying up my phone line”) and you know what, it did!  They would not hesitate to get off my line, wouldn’t even bother to ask if there was a better time to call back.

After I came home, I decided to try it again and it works like a charm every time.  I figured if anyone would have appreciated the humor in the situation, it would have been my mom; she had no time for telemarketers!  So now she “dies” several times a month, each and every time a telemarketer chooses to call my house.  And I smile and remember my mom fondly every time I hang up the phone after one of these calls!

This one is for the “Keeping Up Appearances” fans out there:

If you have caller id, and you think you are being warm stalked by an MLMer, you could answer the phone in your best Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced Bouquet) voice and say:

“The Bucket residence, the lady of the house speaking!”  And then when they give their name, you could loudly announce “It’s xxx.  He/She is not the one with a mercedes, swimming pool or a pony or a sauna.  And they don’t have a games room above their garage either!”

Those of you who watch British comedy would know what I am meaning by the above.

Tigger, your very last sentence brought back a memory that makes me laugh now, but just about put me 6 feet under when I was a new consultant (back in the ice age).

It was maybe my 4th or 5th party and I had dutifully memorized all the scripts that my Director had told me were my words because Mary Kay had given them to me.  I had the hostess feeding the rest of the ladies as I pulled the others out to be “closed” one by one. After I had sold her whatever it was she bought, I asked what I had been told to ask:

“Is there any reason why you couldn’t get three or four of your friends together and earn free Mary Kay as a hostess? I think you’d be great.”

She looked me squarely in the eye and said, “I don’t have a reason, and I’m not going to.”

Believe me, there was no script to cover that, and I learned early on to be myself and not use all the words that had been given to me!    Too Funny

I love where I live.

Soliciting door-to-door is against the law and the cops will come out and ticket you.

The only exception to this law are the Girl Scouts and their once a year cookie drive.

My father has a very original one that gets the telemarketers every time. Phone rings, my dad picks it up and the person starts their shtick, my father starts asking obserd questions  or saying things that pertain to absolutely nothing the person on the other end is hawking. An example…Hello, this is the acme company with a great deal for you on backpacks. My dad, “Yea, its raining here too” Acme company, Exuse me? My dad, I like dogs too. They are soft. Acme, should I call back at a better time? My dad,  my car is giving me so much trouble. And on and on. Its wicked funny to hear.

Curious:  I love it!!  I think I’ll use that also.  Before the “do not call” list I’d be so inundated with calls when I’d hear “May I speak with Southern Bella?”  I would say “No, she’s deceased.” 

Mariier38 – Too funny.  I’ll have to remember this also. 

I told one telemarketer I wasn’t interested but thanks for calling, and then I hung up.  He called back and asked “Why?”  and continued talking.  I set the  phone down on the counter.

  1. I must admit, telemarketers do have a keen sense of calling just as we sit down to dinner. I usually do not lie to them. I just state politely that I was sitting down to dinner with my family and if they would be kind enough to give me their home telephone number, I will be more than happy to call them back the following evening, at their home, during dinner time, and we can chat then. They usually say no thank you, and hang up. No lie necessary and generally they do not call back. 🙂

  2. As for the person at PT who claims her house is on fire or her hubby is having a heart attack, she had better be careful. Some telemarketers may hang right up and call 911 and report that they had called the home during what they were told was an emergency.

  3. Me said

    I suppose this could be very entertaining, but it is so much easier to say, “Please take me off your list.” It is the law that they HAVE to do that, so they say, “Thanks”, hang up and you are off their list. After a short time, you are not on anyone’s list and the calls stop.

    When doing it their way, the calls continue.

  4. Rebecca said

    Good point, Me. To leave absolutely no doubts and no loop holes, one can very specifically say, “Please put this phone number on your company specific do not call list”.

    The people actually making the telephne solicitation calls are just doing their jobs. Just trying to earn their pay check. They are employees. It really irks me when people ask for the employee’s home phone number.

  5. What What said

    Holy cow, haven’t these people heard of the “Do Not Call List”? I added my number a year ago, and signed my parents up too. I think your number is safe for 5 years, and these telemarketers are not supposed to call you. If by chance one does call, I politely let them know my number is on the list and wish them a good night/day/morning. I’m not rude and I don’t lie; as Rebecca said, they’re just doing their job. What’s so flippin hard about that?

  6. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    I really hope the chick that mentioned saying her husband had a heart attack doesn’t believe in karma. If I have ever told a lie, and let’s be honest, we all have, I would NEVER use the excuse that someone died or whatever. That’s just bad bad BAD karma!

  7. PT is Smokin'........Not! said

    I would never claim that someone was ill (or dead) as an excuse for anything. I think it jinxes that person to where they really will get ill. I understand that her mother had already died, but how disrespectful can you be.

    Weird, I know, but…..

  8. mkrules said

    That rejection line is actually hilairious….I have called it before. 😀

  9. I should probably have said that I only use the “Can I have your number?” line when I have gotten repeated calls from the same person (yes I ask their name) after I have declined the service/sale/etc. I don’t mind soliciting calls, and sometimes I want them (like when Omaha Steaks is having a huge sale). But if I have politely told someone “No” and the same person calls back day after day anyway, I do use the “Can I have your number?” line. I understand it’s their job (even I tried telemarketing once as a newly graduated high schooler) and it’s not an easy job.

  10. Hooray for caller ID!

  11. Holler! said

    Oh boy, let’s set the dials on the wayback machine to the great year of 1996. Monday thru Thursday, 3 hours a night I would sit in my not so ergonomically designed office chair and place calls to any timezone that was between the hours of 8 am and 8 pm.

    In an effort to keep my illustrious career on track with the globally known bank that is no more, I would spew forth the script of the night, picking carefully from my list of objections and would ALWAYS remember to give the information that I was REQUIRED to give.

    It would never fail, at least 3 times a week I would have to put up with the “jackass of the night”, that person who thought they were original and would ask for my home phone number or personal information. The only problem dealing with the “jotn” was getting them to understand that they were the reason the call was dragging on forever. Federal guidelines required that we leave the toll free number at the end of every conversation. If you wanted off the calling list, you had to ask. Asking me for my phone number would only be rewarded with “I’m sorry but if you have any questions regarding this call, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-800-123-4567”. The response to that was always “well, you have my number, why can you have my number and I can’t have yours”.

    Telemarketing is a thankless job and it really doesn’t deserve thanks but damn, people, don’t be so harsh. Some of those callers are 17 with bills and trying hard to get going in life. Towards the end of month 6 out of 9 I was losing it majorly out on the call floor. The night someone called me a dumb bitch and to “get a real job” was one of many nights I wished they had just fired me. I even threw the phone back into the cubby and screamed “I will not be called a bitch” and they STILL had me make phone calls.

    As far as the geniuses over at PT, har-har, you’d be known as the “jackass of the night” and just remember, most of the people I worked with were so baked they’d have no problem giving out your phone number, address and social that came up on our screens.

    No one can take a job at a telemarketing company and think they will get anything but a hard time. Please..you are better of slinging burgers at McD’s.I get calls now at 9:30 pm, how do you think I will answer? I am on the DNC list but there are exceptions.Anyone you have contracts with, cable or phone company, constantly call to upgrade service. All this be polite to someone who invades my space is really laughable. When I say no, they carry on with the conversation so damn right I let them have it and hang up.

  13. Holler! said

    Tink, I knew it would be a hard time but for $7.50 an hour plus the chance to earn a minimum $300 bonus each month made it seem worth it. Slinging burgers at McD’s? Only if you had a McD’s nearby and the ones that were 30 minutes away weren’t in the nastiest areas. For the record, I never once made the bonus, was on probation every month for missing the quota and was refused opportunity to transfer into other positions. I was a 17 year old senior in high school. I didn’t want to be at home the rest of my life so I needed a job to pay for my car, insurance, food and necessities. My mother worked and was gone at least 60 hours a week. My father had terminal cancer. I went to school, came home, did chores and got my brother and sister off the school bus, an hour later I went to work. The best I could do in the college department financially was a grant that paid for two semesters. One of three things happen when you take a job at that company, you suck at it really bad and leave, are really great at it and continue with it because it’s a great paying part time job or do 6 months time and transfer to another position that’s not hideous. It’s a foot in the door.

    Not everyone making the phone call is an asshole and some of them care about and need those jobs. Just like they don’t know your situation, the person they call doesn’t know theirs. My long-winded point is this, I’m not saying you have to be Mary Poppins, I’m saying unless you specifically say “Please place my name on your Do Not Call list” they don’t have to remove your name and they will cycle you thru to the next go round. Yelling and lying is more effort than saying “no thank you”, asking to be removed and hanging up.

  14. I used to sell Avon to some very nice girls who worked for a telemarketing sweatshop. My catalog had been dropped at their office building. Their boss was a real prick – I had to make deliveries after 6, when he was gone. They were so sweet, and I always left lots of samples because they worked so hard for so little. Their orders were usually small, but they always appreciated the service. The few times I had to deliver to one of their homes, because the girl had been fired for not making enough calls or getting enough “yes” responses, it was at probably the worst mobile home park in the area. She was just trying to eek out a living.

    Anyhow, that’s a long way to go to say that I agree with many of you. A simple “no, thank you” is all that’s required. If you want off their list, tell them so, and sign up for the Do Not Call list. Please don’t use these people as your evening’s entertainment. They often get paid per call, or have a quota, so your toying wwith them or harassing them only wastes your time and hinders them from making a living.

    And if we have any moles with PT board access, can you please pass these sentiments on?

    i too am a telemarketing survivor. Back in the early 90’s my part time job was working for the phone company selling the services of call waiting and three way calling etc. Back then not everyone had those services on their phone. I was cursed at, called the “N” word and everything else. Back then the “Do not call” registry did not exist. I have also sold carpet cleaning services over the phone. But I always appreciated it when someone would just say, “No thank you”, rather than prolonging my agony and cursing me out. I was just trying to make ends meet and telemarketing jobs are often just jobs that folks get when they are trying to do just that.

    I dont believe anyone means to be a telemarketer forever cause it is a dead end gig. Telemarketing is usually the easiest kind of job to get because the turnover is so high and it is kind of like a last resort kind of job.

    Because of my past experience I would NEVER be rude to someone calling me. I most times just dont answer if I see a number I dont recognize on the caller ID, but if I do answer, I just politely tell them that I am not interested and ask to be removed. End of story. I remember how I felt when someone was rude to me. It is better to end the call quickly so that they can go on and call the next person cause they are also being judged on how many calls they make in a certain amount of time. PTers advocating being rude goes right along with the theme of that site in my opinion.

    This makes me also think of what some of my coworkers would do. I knew folks who would add services to peoples account without them knowing it, and most people would have those services for months before they knew what they were paying for, especially since back then no one was really familiar with call waiting and such. Now whether this was done because that particular customer had been rude to them, I will never know. But why be rude to someone and risk something like that? People are crazy and you never know what level of retaliation they will take. Its just like going to a restaurant and being rude or condesending to a waitress or cook. You never know what kind of “special ingredient” they will add to your meal.

    All I am saying is, it does not pay to be rude.

    That goes for people you meet on the internet too—–trust me on that one.

    How about just being a human being? How about treating people kindly? High school is OVER, girls…

    And as a former bartender, I can attest to the fact that you do NOT want to be rude to someone fixing you a drink or preparing your meal.

    Yep, we have LOTS of “special ingredients!”

    interesting that you should day that on a site that seems to take gleelful pleasure in lampooning other people for varied reasons.
    we ALL act mean & hypocritical at times. PTers, AND people here.
    too bad we can’t all be the good people we want to be all the time. too bad we don’t all want to be good…

    How about you just say that somewhere else. We could easily say the same thing about the PTers such as yourself who choose to “stay on a site that seems to take gleeful pleasure in lampooning other people for varied reasons” even after all the lies and deceit that has been exposed about tracy.

    Mean and hypocritical? Us bashing tracy and her minions hardly compares to the crap they pull. Um, We don’t post anyone’s personal info, we don’t hack into other sites, steal their shit and call it our own, and we sure don’t crash anyone’s vacation to whine about blog bullshit….so maybe you should take that speach and post it over on PT.

    Oh, and one more thing…… HI MRS. METAPHOR!!!

    at least on this site, if you feel the need to speak out against the ridicule of others, your comment will be posted. My experience with PT has been that if you dont participate in the ridicule of others and if you disagree with the climate of whining and blaming everyone else for why MK did not work for you, then your comment will be deleted and in some instances you will be banned for no good reason.
    This is an equal opportunity site, which is more than I can say for PT and Tracy.

    huh, I thought you were an “equal opportunity site” ???

    actually, I did say it on PT. there have been a lot of PTers posting lately asking for less teasing and more tolerance. not all of them are bad.
    read my post again. Like i said, WE ALL are guilty of it.
    “we ALL act mean & hypocritical at times. PTers, AND people here.”
    we are all in the same boat .

    and since you are an “equal opportunity site” I have the right to mention that you are lumping all PTers together and demonzing them for particptaing in something you say is corrupt while you rail against PTers lumping directors together and demonizing them for for particptaing in something they say is corrupt. funny, huh?

  24. Hi Willie
    It was not me posting above. I sort of made this little promise to myself to not post as any other name a while ago so I’m pretty sure that post belongs to someone else…unless I’ve been sleep posting and this is possible because my youngest is suffering from “night terrors” or something so we’re up at night a lot lately…sleep deprivation is ugly, ugly ugly…and mama is cranky cranky cranky…

    but basically, if I post, I’m posting as me, mrsmetaphor…not ME, but me.

    Ok all you hussies. Get off your soapboxes and let’s get back to some FUN! This site should *NEVER* be compared to PT. EVER. We are not PT and we like making fun of it. If yall hussies don’t like it, we don’t really give a shit. At least we can all have differing opinions but we can stay on point. And that, my hussy bitches, is FUN. Get it?

    GEESH!

    You BITCHES!

  26. dizzy…you are SO bossy…sheesh….

  27. Willie Lump Lump said

    I’m just Sayin’,

    Um, NO, we are NOT all in the same boat…for the reasons i mentioned above and then some!

    And this IS an ‘equal opportunity site’. Your post went through, didn’t it??

    For the record, I really don’t give a rat’s ass about PTers lumping all directors together and demonizing them. Hell, they can lump them with US, I still wouldn’t care.

    All i care about is making fun of the fact that Tracy takes herself and her ‘Fraud Investigator thing’ way too seriously. 😛

  28. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    Mrs…you lurve me. Don’t you know who I am?

    Willie ~ I agree with everything you say. We lurve to put all PTers in the same category. Who really gives a shit. It’s funny. DAMNIT

    BITCHES!

  29. Oh dizzy…I know who you are! That’s how come I know you are so BOSSY! lol…
