If it starts of with "Good morning/afternoon Mr (my first name, Rat) and it it has an Indian or Thai accent it's just "click" and I hang up.

Local companies cannot legally contact me as Australia has a do not call register with fairly hefty fines for each number dialled, up to 12,000 USD or so per number.

When I'm out of the country it's never a problem, an unlisted satellite phone number does wonders!

I am always polite with them.These people are doing their job.They have a boss who pays them to do these phone calls.My husband is sometimes rude to them when they call during the noon time ,disturbing us from our meal or his sleep.I get really upset when he talks in a rude way.I can not bear it.
