Here's my version of those stupid telemarketeers:
"Hi, is this Mr. xxx?"
"You've won a free ticket to xxx, remember fill up your name in a lucky draw at xxx, now you are lucky picked by us"
"got meh, never been there leh?"
"anyway, you've won. To collect your prize, you will have to come down to a seminar at our office at [date] [time]".
"if you are sincere, can you deliver the prize to my house"
"we are sincere but you need to come down for the seminar first"
"but i am disable with no legs, can you sent $50 to my house so that i can take a cab there, i really am sincere to go"
"Ch -- Byyyyy"

Why not you get the mobile number of the pest who calls you, saying that your friends are also interested, so you'll need to call him back for confirmation of the number of attendees?
Once you got the number, you know what to do right? Bombard that guy with so much calls about him winning a car... But don't just enjoy yourself... share with your friends so they can call him too!

I found it sometimes quite annoying walking down Orchard Rd with all these surveys. Specially when I am in bad mood.
Attended their so called 75 mins seminar out of curiocity. 30 mins later the salesperson let me out early cause asking to many questions?

did anyone receive call from Singtel? the call was about as a loyalty customer, i was entitled cheaper subscription, more sms, more outgoing free and blah blah blah. Then during my birthday they also called. asking me if i receive any vouchers.
each year they dunno call me how many times and i asked them not to call me again. such a pain in the a55.

Me : "Not interested"
She : Why ? its free.
Me : My job already requires me to fly around and stay in business hotels around the world for free. Why would I care about one more free trip ?
She was stunned. Bet she never rehearsed an answer for that line.
