Re: Need more of this

Whoa there; I don't mind people trying to sell me something as long as they take my "no thanks" as intended. Those who do, and certainly those who apologise for having disturbed me, I can forgive for trying to earn a crust.

But those bastards who won't take "fuck off" for what it is, still keep trying to sell something to those who clearly aren't interestedt... that's a different matter. Dogs, guns, tanks, nukes; I think anything becomes fair game then.

BT are the worst I have to suffer. Last time, after saying I wasn't interested, they pretty much insisted I have a quote, so I let them waffle on for about half an hour before they went ballistic that I wouldn't tell them my address details to check I could have what they were trying to sell me. Apparently it was my fault for wasting their time.
