Pet Peeves

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Pet Peeves

Postby DavidPratt_ » Mon Jul 17, 2006 11:55 pm

Ok Everyone,

Thought I'd ask everyone what their biggest pet peeve is. Mine is simple. I HATE telemarketers. When they phone me around 7:00 PM when I'm in the middle of eating dinner I usually pick up the phone, ask them how they would feel if some interrupted them and then I tell them to go F^&*K themselves.

I just tell them to hang on for a second then put the phone down and go back to what I was doing. They hang up well before I pick it up again. :lol:

I hang up if the person on the other end doesn't respond immediately. The delayed hello gives me the time to hang up before anything happens.

I agree with you dp, I hate telemarketing.

Ilike to ask them sexually explicit questions about farm animals. You would be surprised at what some say. Try it! (Asking those questions not farm animals)

I was having dinner and had just finished a big bowl of chili. When someone phoned me and asked me if I was 'The Man of the House', I put my cordless phone right below my butt cheeks and let one RIPPPP.

Number one, I HATE telemarketers!! I am in sales but I can't stand it when someone ASSUMES the I want to talk to them when I am at home. The last phone call I had (trying to sell me some "investment opportunity"), I asked them to wait while I went to the bathroom-- between grunts, groans, "unnnhhhh's", "oh-mygod-it-fuckin'-hurts", "owwww's"and "wow, that felt good's" THEY hung up on ME. I highly recommend this technique -- right up there with answering the door naked with the Mormons.
