23. The guy was an asshole, but why be so vicious to telemarketer?
Just tell them 'no thanks, take me off your list' and then hang up decently?

Before everyone flames my ass - I am NOT condoning what that asshole did. I just don't find it necessary to spew venom on someone trying to earn a buck in the buscho economy. Issues should be with the company not the low level employee.

Have your son unblock his number before he calls you.. that'll take care of any unwanted calls too. My family has to dial *86 or something before calling me to reveal their number. I will NOT answer my phone if I don't recognize the name or number.
