When a telemarketer calls...
* A built-in Caller ID device will recognize that the caller isn't someone you already know (i.e. a telemarketer).
* Upon recognition that a telemarketer is calling, a computerized system will answer the phone. Using advanced artifical intelligence technology and
an idea from Douglas Adams' novels, the system will respond with "What?" and "I don't understand that." to each of the telemarketer's sentences.
||//Intelligent Technology To Occupy A Telemarketer//
||In general, I will give a bun to any anti-telemarketer device: + . We employ a similar system in our household. Hand the phone to four-year-old child until who yammers on until telemarketer hangs up. Won't work any longer, though. Child is now eight years old, and won't take telemarketer calls.
||I manually occupy telemarketers now. I hope every apprieciates my sacrifices for your benefit :).
