    Sometimes you even get involved in saying hello back and forth several times. I figure if they called me, I get a chance to say hello first, since it's my phone.

    And if I pick up and there's a long pause and then a hello, I just put the phone down - buh bye telemarketer :)

    P.S. Unfortunately, the "Do Not Call Registry" is going to be a bust. You can just log onto the site, say you're a telemarketing company, pay $50, get a list of numbers that you're not supposed to call, and you can use that as your calling list. Good move, they really thought that one through :rolleyes:

    I hate that as well, if I don't get an immediate response I hang up no matter who they are.
