      Just too good. I will have to remember that one when the next seller calls.I have at times answered the phone with Police dept. or Fire dept. which usually results in a quick hangup.

        You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

          Yup!!...............

          I'm a telemarketer basher, first class. And that was absolutely hilarious. Telemarketers never expect a sharp comedown from an "Older" lady, but my late mother was really good at it. Mom would answer the phone and listen to the startup remarks, then cut it off with: (Mom) "Can you give me your home phone number? I'd like to discuss this, but I can't talk business right now." Invariably the TM's response would be "Oh, I never do business from home" to which Mom would reply "Well, I don't either" as she slammed the phone down. If I see a TM on the caller ID on my phone, I usually answer it with something like "Command Post, Major Martin". This will usually cause the TM to hang up, but a few will start saying something, and my best Parris Island Drill Instructor attitude shifts into gear. They never call back.

                        The forward lookout post on the 0-5 deck,just above the bridge also had a phone as it also served as a secondary conning station in my ship.
                        Sometimes,we'd call down to the galley while at sea and inform one of the mess cranks(E-3 and below assigned to the galley when first reporting aboard)that they had an outside phone call on the bridge.
                        Soon enough,the Officer of the Deck would come up for a visit and as the one on my watch was a CWO4/former Chief,the conversation did not involve asking"Howzeyer Mom-n-em?"but a discussion on the use of telephones while on watch.
                        The there was the time I was BT(boiler tech)and during a slow watch,the BTOW started getting this look in his eye and turned to the growler phone which he started cranking on while truning the station selector dial.He then cut in the speaker so we could hear people answering"Main control","Two Fire",Number 2 Engine room","After steering"and one tired voice"Yeah,ChEng(Chief Engineer) here".People started accusing others"I didn't call you,you called me"and no one noticed that a certain fireroom was not involved in the conversation.

                          Doug, I can relate to that! In the 70's our station had a number of Phones with a row of buttons across the bottom, one for each line, and one "Hold" button. Someone, I have no idea who, found that if you pushed two buttons down at the same time, it would tie the lines together. Tha gag would work like this - I would call a phone number on one phone. Someone else would place a call on another phone. When both phones rang (on the other end) I'd jam both buttons down, and someone would answer the phones, and be talking to each other. We called two local Pizza shops one day, and in less than a minute, had two pizza shop owners arguing over who called who. I called my wife and my mother-in-law once. They figured it out in a couple of minutes.
