    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    Anybody else been getting the "your vehicles warranty is about to expire blah blah blah..." calls? Ever since they released cellphone numbers for telemarketers i get that call daily.

    I've tried the whole "take me off the list" and put my number on the .gov webpage for the do not call list but i still get them. also, i never give my cell number out for anything.

    I know I saw something in the local paper here this week. I did find this online from: http://www.whnt.com/news/whnt-warranty-calls,0,3921745.story

    I always f*uck with em! one time someone called my workplace talking about visa/MC prices going down and everything, I was in charge at the time so i got to deal with the call, got the guy so mad he ended up hanging up.

    Another time a telemarketer called i just said "can you hold on a min" and the put the phone down beside the tv for atleast 25 mins, picked it up and he was still there... haha then i just hung up
