Getting 3-4 of those annoying telemarketers a day, on top of the freakin political ones and then the legit ones (cancer society etc) Did the do not call thing but it is getting worse. Tried being nice, no good, tried swearing no good it is the same one trying to sell me a security system. Finally told them they are going to need one cuz I am a coming, no good either. I even tried keeping them on the line forever and then telling them not interested, open to suggestions

Just tell them to hold on for a moment, put the mute button on, lay your phone down and continue about your business. IF you really want to have fun with them, pop back on, let them start to talk, then stop them and repeat with the mute. Then, start talking to them about YOUR home business--amway, snap on tools, avon, etc... lie, and give them a sales pitch. Might not stop them from calling you, but you wasted enough of their time that someone else might not get that call today.... lol

I agree, the phone calls are getting very annoying from various companies and from different states. I too have our number on the do not call list, but that doesn't seem to work anymore. I tried not answering the phone but that is not the solution either.
When they call ... Tell them to take your name and phone number off their calling list. Most of them are usually polite about it. It has helped at our house, otherwise they keep trying to call you at all different times of the day, which is very annoying.
