I
woke up this morning, got dressed and went in the kitchen where my wife
was already fixing breakfast.
I looked to see what she was cooking, and I see
one of my socks in the frying pan.
"What are you doing?" I asked her.
She said "I'm doing what you asked me to do last
night when you came to bed very drunk," she replied.
Completely puzzled, I walked away thinking to
myself ,"I don't remember asking her to cook my
sock..."

REVENGE
ON THE TELEMARKETER

Three
Little Words That Work!!

(1) The three
little words: 'Hold On, Please...'
Saying
this, while putting down your phone and walking off
(instead of hanging-up immediately) would make
each telemarketing call so much more
time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a
halt.

Then when you eventually hear BT's
'beep-beep-beep' tone, you know it's time to go
back and hang up your handset....you have efficiently
completed your task.
These three little
words could help eliminate telephone
soliciting.



(2)
Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with
no one on the other end?
This is a
telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone
calls and records the time of day when a person
answers the phone.

This technique is
then used to determine the best time of day for a
'real' salesperson to call back and get someone
at home.
What you can do after answering: If
you notice there is no one there, is to immediately
start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7
times, as quickly as possible. This confuses the
machine that dialled the call and it kicks your number
out of their system. Gosh, what a shame not to
have your name in their system any longer!!!


(3) When you get those 'pre-approved'
letters in the mail for everything from credit cards
to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do
not
throw away the return envelope.


Most of these come with postage-prepaid
return envelopes, right?
It costs them more
than the regular postage 'IF' and when they are
returned. It costs them nothing if you throw
them away! In that case, why not get rid of some of
your other junk mail and put it in these cool
little, postage-prepaid return envelopes.


Send an advert for your local chimney sweeper
to American Express... They might need one!

Send a pizza coupon to HSBC... In case their
canteen packs up. You get the idea.
If you didn't
get anything else that day, then just send them
back their blank application form.... After all,
it is their form!

If you want to remain
anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on
anything you return.

You can even send
the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep
them guessing! It still costs them, and it is
their envelope after all; you are just returning
it!!!!

The banks and credit card companies are
currently getting a lot of their own junk back
in the post, but folks....we need to OVERWHELM
them, in order to stop them.


Let's
let them know what it's like to get lots of junk
mail, and best of all they're paying for
it...Twice!

Let's help keep Royal Mail busy.
Since the Royal Mail is saying that e-mail is
cutting into their business profits, let's help
them so they will not need to increase postage costs
again. You get the idea!

If enough people
follow these tips, it will work ---- maybe junk mail
will reduce.

THIS JUST MIGHT BE ONE
E-MAIL THAT YOU WILL WANT TO FORWARD
