"According to your logic, I would have the right to treat anyone in a job that I think is crap any way I want."
You're stretching your argument here. You're entitled to your opinion, and frankly I welcome it. But you're twisting my words. I deem these companies unethical, yes, but I'm not saying that we should rally up all the telemarketers and impose a "final solution". If he wants to work as a telemarketer then that's his own choice and problem, but do not call me
. I am on a national Do Not Call list. I also do not owe money to this company or anyone else they are affiliated with. So there no justifiable reason for them to contact me.
I seriously doubt this person is going to get fired over this. However, if he is fired over this incident then the onus is not on me. I'm not the one running the scam. I'm not the shill trying to swindle unsuspecting people. If the company he works for has any semblance of reason then would understand that they as a company are walking a very thin line and understand that they will raise the ire of the people they are harassing and that's no fault of the person actually making the call but rather the company itself.
I admit that I receive far fewer telemarketing and spam calls then I did in the past, but I still have zero tolerance for all of it. The worst I had was a call telling me that if I visit a seminar I will walk away with a brand new 40" LCD TV (this was about 8 years ago, so that was amazing). I blatantly asked the man if this was a scam because I cannot believe someone who give away such an item. He stuttered and tried to assure me that it's not a scam. I asked to speak with his manager so he asked to me wait a moment and then another person came to the phone. When I asked him where their office is location he responded with "F*k you! You're just a piece of s**
. Why don't you just go f*** off"... etc. It went on like that for a bit then he hung up on me. While this is the worst of all the calls, it still consistent with my experiences with telemarketers.
Edit: apparently I forgot how to grammar
