I think we all get aggravated with telemarketers. I try to be cordial with them (up to a point), because that's their job, every day, and I wouldn't want to have people hang up on me time after time, but when you keep politely trying to say no thanks, and they keep pushing and pushing, it's very hard not to get a little "testy".

I recently told a telemarketer, after 3 attempts to sell me something, that I was trying to be polite, but 3 times was enough. He FINALLY got it, and replied with, "Okay, the third time's the charm" before hanging up on me!!!
