If you are anything like me, you cannot stand when telemarketers call. Here is a fun way to get a laugh and waste their time as much as they waste yours.
A Los Angeles man came up with the idea to prank them with his invention called Jolly Roger Telephone. Essentially, how it works is by starting a three-way call with the service, which is absolutely free by the way, so the annoying telemarketer can listen as the bot rambles on. It’s genius, and quite comical,too !
The longer you listen, the funnier the interaction gets. I don’t want to give away too much here because it is way more fun to experience for yourself. The next time you get a call from a telemarketer, all you have to do when they ask for you is say, “hold on a minute. I’ll get them,” put the telemarketer on hold, dial 214-666-4321, join the calls, and let the hilarity begin!
In just 10 days, the number has recieved over 100,000 calls. The creator’s ultimate goal is that telemarketing would become inefficient, making the call center business model collapse. Good riddance!
