Hilarity ensues. That lady had completely lost her noodle. I fear for telemarketers. :P

Among some of the insults she called him, my favorites were:

"SON OF A MOTHERFUCKER"

"RAPIST"

"TERRORIST"

In fact, those were re-occuring insults throughout the 8 minute recording. :P

Telemarketers are the lowest scum on the earth. Really. They deserve everything they get.

What about people who cannot, for whatever reason, perform a different job? You have to make a living one way or another, and being a telemarketer is better than being a vagrant.

I don't care. They way (some) telemarketes take advantage of the elderly/gullible/weak of mind to sell them crap that they can't afford/don't need/have no use for/doesn't work, the whole industry is rotten. Not to mention that they take up people's valuable time, and won't hang up even if you ask them once.

Well, perhaps I should give out some more information on that particular call--the guy was at work leading this psychopath on. He didn't have to say anything offensive to provoke her.....she did that quite well on her own.

Bashing telemarketers is another topic for another time. :P This was just a riot to listen to, and at times.....unbearable.

Hey I listened to it, and I can sympathize with the woman even though she is batshit crazy :P It was funny to listen to, though.

Are we so weak that we need protecting from an enemy that can be VANQUISHED BY HANGING UP THE PHONE.

I'm quite capable of haging up the phone yes. I'm also signed up on a national list of "do not call these numbers, asshats" that telemarketers in Sweden are pretty much forced abide by.

But that doesn't change the fact that it's a rotten, rotten business, and that there are loads of telemarketers who take advantage of people. Excuse me for having a morality :P

There are also a ton of telemarketers that simply call because it's their job. Sure they are pushy, but when you get bonuses and incentives based on sales you pretty much have to be. Not all of them are trying to take advantage of people. They are simply trying to sell a product or service. It goes back to the old saying "A few bad apples can spoil the bunch". Your morality is shit for saying that "it is a rotten business". It's not the business, it's the assholes that take advantage of others.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

M-O-R-A-L-I-T-Y? Is that how they spell "overly sensitive" in Sweden. I can't believe you're 'getting all uppity' about telemarketers.
