    My brother has this philosophy of NOT ending a call like that. You keep them on the line for at least 30 - 60 minutes... asking questions, probing, talking, etc etc. Only then do you end the conversation, by telling them you were never interested in the first place.

    I don't have the time or patience to do that, but he feels if they wanna waste his time, he will waste their time as well.

    I actually feel for these guys as they are just doing their job. Often they do not even work for the bank concerned and must be paid a commission based on the number of cards sold.

    Can you imagine being told that you can take a 2nd card to pay off your existing credit card?!!! They just do not take no for an answer.
