If it's not bad enough to have a telemarketer call you at home, then how about this? My mother received a call from a telemarketer this past week. The phone rang and she picked it up. It was an automated call and the voice on the other line said:
"This is (name withheld) Bank and this is a telemarketing call. We apologize, but all of our telemarketer callers are currently busy on other lines."
Now that's funny.
