It's a good thing I can't reach down the telephone

to get at the telesales people today!

In 2 days I have had 4 different telesales people call. At dinnertime, at bathtime, when the phone was hidden under a pile of stuff and I raced to find it before it rang get the picture. And each and every person asked for The Arse.

Listen you bloody incompetent morons: The Arse has not lived here for more than 10 months! In the UK, our data protection laws mean that you should not be using data that is more than 6 months old...So why are you blowing up my phone and bringing his name into my home? I'm glad that you go all shamefaced when I tell you exactly why you can't speak to him. I'm glad that you feel uncomfortable, after all, you cold callers are the home invaders of the communication world. And while it's good that you have enough manners to apologise leave me alone!

End of rant

But ouch, I don't want his name being spoken here & especially not by total strangers who want to sell something.

I'm sorry, I giggled at this one. Exactly what you said. Had people calling my cell (mobile for you UK folks) and have explained to each one that I'm divorcing the rat. They haven't called back.

I once had XWH's job call my house asking for him OR OW#<who freakin' knows>.
I very promptly (and loudly) told his boss that Jackass no longer lived here and that whore (yes, I called her a whore) NEVER lived here. The line went very quiet, then the woman apologized and hung up.

Half an hour later, XWH was blowing up my phone. Oh well- not my problem!

Yeah, I must admit enjoying their uncomfortable scramble to find the right words after I tell them.

GabyBaby - What had he told them?

I found this funny too...just thinking of their reaction as they were informed of the exact nature of the situation.

Here's hoping they get the message!

I have no idea what he told his boss after I talked to her.
OW was a coworker (most of them were), so I'm sure folks at his job knew they were "together". I'd already kicked him out by that point, but he hadn't updated his phone number records at work.
I'm pretty sure he fixed that issue quickly after that incident!
