Love it. It's up there with Jerry Seinfeld asking the telemarketer his home number so he can call him during dinner.

Years ago, when Mr. AOW had brain surgery, I used to say, "This is a bad time for a call. My husband just had surgery for a brain tumor."

I didn't get telemarketing calls for years after that.

Another one that works: "This is a bad time. There's been a death in the household."

I cheat. I use caller ID. If someone really needs me, they can leave a message and if it's legit, I will go ahead and pick up. If they say nothing and hang up...well, I don't want to talk to them either.

Alligator,
Caller ID is a Godsend.

My comments above related to the days before caller ID.

Tom Mabe is a genius when it comes to messing with people over the phone.

I use caller ID all the time. If you call me around dinner time, you had better be friend or family!
