I like telemarketers

Actually, I don't like telemarketers -- they're the reason I have caller ID -- but I do like messing with them. Here's the conversation I've been having lately with the ones who manage to get through to me:
Telemarketer: Is Mr. or Mrs. Lynn there?

Me (angrily): No! Thank God!

Telemarketer: Er ... do you know when they will be home?

Me: Never, I hope!

Hints at a little family drama, and usually gets them flustered. Next time, I'm going to try saying, "Listen -- I really don't feel comfortable doing this over the phone. Can we meet somewhere?" I'll bet that weirds them out too.
