Andy Rooney's tips for telemarketers

Three Little Words That Work !!

(1)The three little words are: "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 the phone company's "beep-beep-beep" tone, you know it's time to go back and hang up your handset, which has efficiently completed its task.

These three little words will 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 used to determine the best time of day for a "real" sales person 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 dialed 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) Junk Mail Help:

When you get "ads" enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these "ads" with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own junk mail away.

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-paid return envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular 37cents postage "IF" and when they receive them back.

It costs them nothing if you throw them away! The postage was around 50 cents before the last increase and it is according to the weight. In that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-paid return

One of Andy Rooney's (60 minutes) ideas.

Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Send a pizza coupon to Citibank. If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them their blank application back!

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

You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing! It still costs them 37 cents.

The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own junk back in the mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM 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 our postal service busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, and that's why they need to increase postage costs again. You get the idea!

If enough people follow these tips, it will work----I have been doing this for a few years, and I get very little junk mail anymore.

Good one smile.gif Guess I'll have to apply that towards my junk mail wink3.gif

I work as a sales rep for an answering service (outbound calls only, no telemarketing), and we have one or two funeral homes as clients. Here's a funny little anecdote about a call one of our agents took a year and a half back.

She took this information call from a woman who wanted to know if a certain person was exposed at that particular funeral home that week-end. The agent ended her conversation with "Thank you ma'am. I'll give the gentleman your mesage"

Now there's a hint that your job's becoming a tad repetitive lmao.gif

Here's a spooky one I recieved from a co-worker yesterday.

A man was walking home alone late one foggy night, when behind him he




Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the
image of
an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward




Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing
quickly behind him






He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes
slams and locks the door behind him.

However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the




on his heels, the terrified man runs.

Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, the man locks himself in. His heart
pounding; his head is reeling; his breath is coming in sobbing gasps.

With a loud CRASH the casket breaks down the door.

Bumping and clapping toward him.

The man screams and reaches for something, anything,
but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup!

Desperate, he throws the cough syrup at the casket...


The coffin stops

It is good to be a woman:

1. We got off the Titanic first.

2. We can scare male bosses with the mysterious gynecological disorder excuses.

3 Taxis stop for us.

4. We don't look like a frog in a blender when dancing.

5. No fashion faux pas we make, could ever rival the Speedo.

6. We don't have to pass gas to amuse ourselves.

7. If we forget to shave, no one has to know.

8. We can congratulate our teammate without ever touching her rear end.

9. We never have to reach down every so often to make sure our privates are still there.

10. We have the ability to dress ourselves.

11. We can talk to the opposite sex without having to picture them naked.

12. If we marry someone 20 years younger, we are aware that we will look like an idiot.

13. We will never regret piercing our ears.

14. There are times when chocolate really can solve all your problems.

15. We can make comments about how silly men are in their presence because they aren't listening anyway.

Mr. and Mrs. Fenton are retired, and Mrs. Fenton insists her husband go with
her to Wal-Mart. He gets so bored with all the shopping trips. He prefers to
get in and get out, but Mrs. Fenton loves to browse. One day Mrs. Fenton
gets this letter from Wal-Mart:

Dear Mrs. Fenton,

Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in
our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and may ban both of you from our
stores. We have documented all incidents on our video surveillance
equipment. All complaints against Mr. Fenton are listed below.

Things Mr. Bill Fenton has done while his spouse was
shopping in Wal-Mart:

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put
them in people's carts when they weren't looking.

2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in House wares to go
off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor
leading to the ladies rest rooms.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an
official tone, 'Code 3' in house wares..... and watched what happened.

5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and asked to put a
bag of M&M's on layaway.

6. September 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

7. September 15: Set up a tent in the camping department
and told other shoppers he'd invite them in if they'll bring pillows from
the bedding department.

8. September 23: When a clerk asks if they can help him,
he begins to cry and asks, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?'

9. October 4: Looked right into the security camera;
used it as a mirror, and picked his nose.

10. November 10: While handling guns in the hunting
department, asked the clerk if he knows where the antidepressants are.

11. December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously
loudly humming the "Mission Impossible " theme.

12. December 6: In the auto department, practiced his
"Madonna look" using different size funnels.

13. December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people
browse through, yelled "PICK ME!" "PICK ME!"

14. December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumes
the fetal position and screams "NO! NO! It's those voices again!!!!"

And last, but not least .

15. December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the
door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, "There is no toilet paper in

Old Coffee

Late one night I stopped at one of those 24-hour gas station mini
marts to get myself a cup of freshly-brewed coffee. When I picked up
the pot, I could not help noticing that the brew was as black as
asphalt and just about as thick.

"How old is the coffee you have here?" I asked the woman who was
standing behind the store counter.

She shrugged. "Don't know. Been workin' here only two weeks."

Elvis Presley's Senior Citizen song :

Are you lonesome tonight, does your tummy feel tight?
Did you bring your Mylanta and Tums?
Does your memory stray, to that bright sunny day...
When you had all your teeth and your gums?

Is your hairline receding, are your eyes growing dim? Hysterectomy for
her, and its prostate for him. Does your back give you your
knees predict rain? Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

Is your blood pressure up, your cholesterol down?
Are you eating your low-fat cuisine?
All that oat bran and fruit, Metamucil to boot,
keeps you like a well-oiled machine.

If it's football, or baseball...he sure knows the score.
Yes, he knows where it's at...but forgets what it's for.
So, your gall bladder's gone, and his gout lingers on.
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

When you're hungry, he's not. When you're cold, then he's hot. Then you
start that old thermostat war. When you turn out the light, he goes
left, you go right. Then you get his great symphonic snore.

He was once so romantic, and witty and smart.
How'd he turn out to be such a cranky old fart?
So don't take any bets, this is as good as it gets.
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight

Batting Practice... whistling.gif

Dear Santa,

I've been a good mom all year. I've fed, cleaned and cuddled my children
on demand, visited the doctor's office more than my doctor, and sold
sixty-two cases of candy bars to raise money to plant a shade tree on the school

I was hoping you could spread my list out over several Christmases,

since I had to write this letter with my son's red crayon, on
the back of a receipt in the laundry room between cycles, and who knows
when I'll find anymore free time in the next 18 years.

Here are my Christmas wishes:

I'd like a pair of legs that don't ache (in any color, except purple,
which I already have) and arms that don't hurt or flap in the breeze; but are
strong enough to pull my screaming child out of the candy aisle in the
grocery store.

I'd also like a waist, since I lost mine somewhere in the seventh month
of my last pregnancy.

If you're hauling big ticket items this year, I'd like fingerprint
resistant windows and a radio that only plays adult music; a television that
doesn't broadcast any programs containing talking animals; and a refrigerator
with a secret compartment behind the crisper where I can hide to talk on the

On the practical side, I could use a talking doll that says, "Yes,
Mommy" to boost my parental confidence, along with two kids who don't fight, and
three pairs of jeans that will zip all the way up without the use of power

I could also use a recording of Tibetan monks chanting "Don't eat in
the living room" and "Take your hands off your brother," because my voice seems
to be just out of my children's hearing range and can only be heard by
the dog.

If it's too late to find any of these products, I'd settle for enough
time to brush my teeth and comb my hair in the same morning, or the luxury of
eating food warmer than room temperature without it being served in a
Styrofoam container.

If you don't mind, I could also use a few Christmas miracles to brighten
the holiday season. Would it be too much trouble to declare ketchup a
vegetable? It will clear my conscience immensely. It would be helpful
if you could coerce my children to help around the house without demanding
payment as if they were the bosses of an organized crime family.

Well, Santa, the buzzer on the dryer is ringing and my son saw my feet
under the laundry room door. I think he wants his crayon back.
Have a safe trip and remember to leave your wet boots by the door and
come in and dry off so you don't catch cold.

Help yourself to cookies on the table but don't eat too many or leave
crumbs on the carpet.

Yours Always, MOM...!

P.S. One more can cancel all my requests if you can keep my
children young enough to believe in Santa.

rex, loved the up to 291.5
I think the letters is great!

(Budgie got up to 316.7...)
Oh Budgie! RE: the WalMart letter.... lmao.gif lmao.gif lmao.gif lmao.gif lmao.gif
This has been a bumpy week or so for me. I needed a good laugh. I laughed so hard tears came out my eyes!!!

I also enjoyed the letter to Santa. I certainly came to the right place for a pick-me-up.

Thanks guys! clapping.gif clapping.gif

This isn't funny, though it's quite astonishing. Being that it came to me in my email, I thought this was the proper thread.

"These trees were grown in Santa Cruz CA the year I don't know , but the man that grew them never told any one how he did it . then in around 1999 the owner of Nob Hill foods in Gilroy CA moved them to his park in Gilroy and they are doing well. "

Yes those are quite neat. It looks like a few he somehow fused a couple trees together. I think I would be cringing every time a good windstorm came through though. They cant be as strong as a normal tree trunk.
I dunno, Kurt... The way I have seen this type of thing done before, they actually cut away the outer surface of bark, and make the tree branches grow together so that, eventually, the branches are actually intertwined. A multistranded rope is stronger than a single strand, so I'd think these tress have got to be pretty strong... *shrug*
Yes, simply amazing shock.gif It reminds me of piercing that is done in some cultures that produces big openings in the parts of the body, like lips or ears.

A Kitten's Guide to Nigerian Tuna Spam
Which got this link in return... How to Bathe Your Cat...NOT!
And then this reply...
Dear Fluffy,

I was almost persuaded into a Nigerian scam a few months ago, but followed my intuition, which led me to not falling for the deal (of a lifetime!). But, you are so cute and I want to help! I can imagine you stuffing yourself with all that bad tuna, poor Kitty! So, just let me know what I must do to help a sweet little Kitty like you!

You must do one thing for me though. If my cat Sidney finds out I'm helping you with your tuna problem, well, lets just say there would be big problems, and I do believe he listens in to my phone conversations, and I'm quite sure he reads my e-mail too, he's always hanging around when I have people over, you know, probably listening to what we're saying!! Sometimes he hides behind the sofa out of sight, just taking it all in!!!

So be very cautious when you contact me...your name will be Jake instead of Fluffy....Your tuna problem will be a vicious dog that kills cats every time you turn around....and you live next door.

I've been trying to keep Sidney in the house instead of going outside for quite some time now, (I think he is planning on taking my car for a joy ride, why else would my car keys come up missing just to be found close to the cat box) and you just might help me out there.

Your Friend Always

Hey, you wouldn't have any money to put into my accounts to help me out financially, would you?


Yeah. Janet better be careful, or I'm sure Sidney will be demanding a cut... whistling.gif

Anyone who has ever had a loved one in the hospital will enjoy this:

A woman called a local hospital . .

"Hello. Could you connect me to the person who gives information about patients. I'd like to find out if a patient is getting better, doing as expected, or getting worse."

The voice on the other end said, "What is the patient's name and room number?"

"Sarah Finkel, room 302."

"I'll connect you with the nursing station . . "

"3-A Nursing Station. How can I help You?"

"I'd like to know the condition of Sarah Finkel in room 302."

"Just a moment. &nb sp;Let me look at her records. Mrs. Finkel is doing very well. In fact, she's had two full meals, her blood pressure is fine, she is to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and, if she continues this improvement, Dr. Cohen is going to send her home Tuesday at noon."

The woman said, "What a relief! Oh, that's fantastic . . that's wonderful news!"
The nurse said, "From your enthusiasm, I take it you are a close family member or a very close friend!"

"Neither! I AM Sarah Finkel in 302! Nobody here tells me s***.

A young man at this construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone based on his strength. He especially made fun of one of the older workman. After several minutes, the older worker had enough.

"Why don't you put your money where you mouth is?" he said. "I'll bet a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to the other building that you won't be able to wheel back."

"You're on, old man," the young man replied. "Let's see what you've got."

The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then nodding to the young man, he said with a smile, "All right. Get in.

A WOMEN was flying from Seattle to San Francisco. Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes.

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind. The man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight.

He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, "Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?" The blind lady replied, "No thanks, but maybe my dog would like to stretch his legs."

Picture this:

All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog!

The pilot was even wearing sunglasses. People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!

True story.... here's his picture. Have a great day and remember...
