So evidently, people hate telemarketers to call. So WHY do companies still perpetuate this advertising pracitce? OH sure, maybe a few poor suckers will buy this month'* scam, but most just get annoyed and cuss or hang up.
And when one sees it is a telemarketer call, most people won't listen for a second.
Why do telemarketers still exist?

SIDE NOTE - One time this collection place called my house,
COL - "...and how do you plan to take care of this...?"
ME - "I am waiting for H*** to freeze over..."
Ain't heard from them since.
It exists because it works. For every issue where you hear someone complain, there are 2 or 3 more that like whatever it is. Some people are lonely. Some people just can't say no. Some people (like my neighbours) just love to shop, and will buy anything and never regret it.

You have no idea how easily credit cards sell to college students. At least 20 per hour per seller.

I used to do telepestering, and we were selling stupid cable packages.
It was bout the time I mentioned "sex in the city" that some old bat gave me a lecture about how she was raising some wholesome X-tian grand daughter.

I wanted to ask her, "So I guess you wouldn't want to get this in time to see Holyfield pound a few streams of blood out to Tyson'* skull? Or the sexy show "sex in the city"?"
