So there’s this video on YouTube about how you can terrorize telemarketers with one word: saying “yes” over and over.
This strategy doesn’t always work.
If you’re saying yes repeatedly to someone who wants to clean your carpet, or check your air conditioning unit, saying yes will only get them to knock on your do, saying you gave your consent for their invasion of your home.
When dealing with that kind of situation, it might not be a bad idea to mix in the word “no” when the appointment setting moment arrives.
Then again, you can always deny that you set up the appointment to begin with, provided they didn’t record the conversation.
