    I spent a few weeks trying to get people to switch to n-power door-to-door with pyramid sales group. The people there were the worst cunts in the world and we had to have four hours of motivation shite before we could go out pitching with a big rally in wembley once a year for the BIG HITTERS and the SHARP SHOOTERS.

    cunts to a man

    Wow did they invite some ice hockey players along?


    And @ heyyo, fair enough thanks for the insight, and I hope you can find a better paid job in the future :)

    srs indeed. God I hated that job. You could make some cash if you were good enough though (and also a bit of a cunt).

    Hang the phone up or close the door.

    Self stacking sounds painful.

    My favourite way is to timidly mumble or make excuses so that I can leave without causing a scene, but if anyone asks then I got right in their face and came up with something hilariously witty, like if they were selling freezers I'd be like 'just chill off, dickweed', and especially if they're one of those religionist types I'd say that I stole a diatribe from West Wing or something, you know, something written by someone cleverer than me, and then I'd say that it made them get angry/cry/renounce their faith or something.

    Witty lines are good. I prefer lines totally out of context. So follow "have you felt the light of the Lord today?" with:

    * It's just been revoked!
    * Looks like he got the point!
    * Now I know what a TV Dinner feels like!
    * I want bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese!
    * Come quietly or there will be.... trouble.
    * 2 week. 2 weeeks. 2 weeeeeeeksssss

    Just mix them up.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi
