Default "You called me unsolicited so I can waste your time"

If this were 1985 and you had to answer the phone every time to know if was Aunt Judy or someone selling Aluminum Siding then I could maybe....maybe understand this argument.

My dad had a rule in our house at dinner time you don't answer the phone. After caller ID if you don't recognize the number you don't answer the phone.

Period. You know if you're expecting a call from a number you don't know.

Yet people delight in messing with people desperate enough to work telemarketing. I don't understand this mentality? You answer the phone presumably because you were interested and then instead of a polite "no thank you" followed by disconnecting you proceed to mess up the person.

Can you imagine if anyone did this to anyone else? "Free sample" and then the person starts throwing a hissy fit they would be treated like an asshole. But they do it over the phone and suddenly they are a hero? I don't get it.
