My name is in the book, so telemarketers generally know my name. If they ask for Mr or Mrs, then I know they are selling, because there is no Mrs. But in Canada I can usually tell a telemarketer because they all use dialling software that only notifies them if there is a pickup. I can tell by the two second delay that I am in for a pitch. (Although it might be a call from the bank.)

I get wrong numbers who rudely answer my Hello with a rude "Who's this". I kindly tell them that they called me, and I have no intention of telling them who I am. Sets them back a bit. Some people are so perfect that they cannot comprehend how telephone equipment can be so faulty to connect them to a different number from the one they pushed.
