It just rang, and when I answered it...the voice said:
"Hello, I'm calling from the Republican national co.." SLAM !!
Hope I busted his eardrum

Want a better/more fun solution?

My dear Mother used to always keep a whistle by the phone in the kitchen. Prank phone call= earache for someone! Overbearing telemarketer that won't take a polite "no, thank you" for an answer? Earache for someone!

pretty ironic though....that they called...ME, and called while I was on this site, reading the lww/tchr er,inspirational and educational, messages...maybe, only 1 or 2 of them though....they are great at keeping one "regular"

At the risk of telling you something you may or may not know, slamming a phone, and gently hanging it up produces the exact same sound to the caller...a little electronic "click" followed by silence.

I didn't slam my phone down....just hung up.... that wasn't quite as allegorical as my updated version.....
But, thanks for the info...It'll save me a phone in case either you or lww call and ask for my advice

If that's the only reason, let it go. No sense in paying for something you will never need.

It really is a beautiful thing! It always tickled me when she would do that. She is so overly nice and patient on the phone, so I always knew if it came to that point, whoever it was darn sure deserved it.

Another fun thing is the Tom Mabe classic. I think it's been posted on here before. But just in case anyone missed it, you can listen here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7OgWcwgB50) or read it Here (http://www.s-anand.net/blog/telemarketer-in-a-murder-investigation/) . Hilarious!

Funny. And if that doesn't work, and you're on a desk phone, you can say, "Could you hold just a second?" Hit hold, then answer, "IRS, Can I help you."

They'll NEVER call back!
