10 ways to avoid irritating calls

1. After the telemarketer finishes speaking, ask him/her to marry you.

2. Tell the telemarketer you are busy at the moment, and ask him/her if he/she will give you his/her home phone number so you can call him/her back.

3. Ask them to repeat everything they say, several times.

4. Tell them it is dinner time, BUT ask if they would please hold. Put them on your speaker phone while you continue to eat at your leisure. Smack your food loudly and continue with your dinner conversation.

5. Tell them that all business goes through your agent, and hand the phone to your five year old child.

6. Tell them you are hard of hearing and that they need to speak up…louder…louder…louder!

7. Tell them to speak very slowly because you want to write every word down.

8. If they start out with, “How are you today?” say “I’m so glad you asked, because no one these days seems to care, and I have all these problems…………”

9. Cry out in surprise, “Helen, is that you? I’ve been hoping you’d call! How is the family?” When they insist they are not Helen, tell them to stop joking. This works especially well if the telemarketer is really MALE.

10. Tell the xxxx call center guy to call on your office number and give him the yyyy call center number.

Great. Hats off. Our Chennai Corporation is using Twitter and sharing lots of useful information.

Little Lending Library – Madipakkam

My friend Charanya’s strongly recommended Little Lending Library, Madipakkam.  I joined the “Little Lending Library, Madipakkama couple of days back.  It has a huge collection of Tamil and English novels.  Joining deposit is Rs 250 + 5. In back side of each book they mentioned the rent for holding the book for a week. After a week if you keep that book with you, you have to pay a fine of 1/5th of the rent mentioned per day.  Right now I am reading two books “Kannadik kopurangal – Balakumaran” & “A journey to the center of the earth – Jules verne (retold by: S.W. Khatai)
