There are many ways to answer the phone. One of them is to scream on the person. This is an excellent way to make the person feel uncomfortable, yet still come off as funny. There are a few other funny ways to answer the phone as well. Read on to learn some of them. They might even impress your friends! But be sure to do them in a mature manner. You may also wish to try some of them out for yourself.

Answering the phone as a telemarketer

If you are receiving a lot of unwanted phone calls, you might want to consider reporting telemarketers. Telemarketers are not human, they are chosen by a computer. As such, they may not be sympathetic to your complaints. You can, however, politely ask to speak to a supervisor. Most call centers do not have supervisors, so it is important to ask the right person for help. If you have a problem with a telemarketer, don’t hesitate to ask to speak to a manager. If you are unable to reach a supervisor, the caller will likely hang up or say they have “disconnected” and keep calling.

Telemarketers will attempt to sell to you on the first call. If you are unable to persuade a customer, you should use the “Three Nos” rule. If you receive a no more than three times from the same person, you’ve already failed twice. The third time, however, your client will be much more open to the sales pitch. A good telemarketer will try to remain on the phone as long as possible. If you want to get your message across, be direct.

Pretending to be a banker

It may seem silly, but many young bankers have trouble influencing people and making friends. One of the most important points in office politics is to make a good first impression. It’s not hard to pull this off. Here’s how. Try it! First, get a female bank account name. This makes you appear more reliable. Second, say that you’re a banker. Last, pretend to be a banker when answering the phone.

Pretending to be a telemarketer

The first step to avoid being scammed by telemarketers is to always check your caller ID. Most phones come with a feature that shows the number of the person calling before you answer. If the number is not listed on your phone, a scam artist will try to fake caller ID information to keep you on the line. By answering “yes,” you will be subjected to a barrage of unwanted calls.

Another way to avoid telemarketers is to reply rudely. It can be intimidating to deal with an unfamiliar 800 number. A telemarketer may start a long conversation with you, but when you hang up, the call will simply disappear. If you answer the phone rudely, they may record the conversation and pass it on to the next caller. Ultimately, this can result in you being subject to a lifetime of unwanted calls.
