At the moment I am plagued by automated phone calls, PPI is the worse one, but I get all sorts of rubbish calls.
Normally it’s an automated call, so all you can do is yell at the phone and hang up. (Though one guy turned his landline into a premium rate number and is making money from them)
This morning it was a real human. 09.30 Sunday morning, not a good time to call me. The conversation went something like this.
There then followed about 15 minutes of discussion. I guess he wanted to be in the office on a Sunday morning making nuisance phone calls as much as I wanted to be receiving them. In the end he agreed. Conversation continued.
I don’t hold out any hope for my £1000, but I really doubt they will be phoning me again.

I actually made 45 dollars from them from a law suit that somehow had my name on the mailing list. Right now I’m just being called by the charities. They’ve kind of ruined it for themselves because I know if I give them any money at all, I will be hounded for the rest of my life because then my name goes on the very current sucker list. I bought something from these handicapped people once, but it turned out handicapped meant they wore glasses. The overpriced trash bags they sold me rip all the time and I’ve had them forever because I hate them.
“Don’t call me Sir, I work for a living”, haha. Personally I would have told him I use industrial craft’s water mill generators to power my house. It only costs 4 wooden sticks and blocks. If he’s a savvy gamer, he’ll realize he’s been jested.
I actually do use geothermal. That’s the real funny bit.
The complex I live in has a geothermal plant built into it.
Haha, this made my day. I’d try contacting phone services about information about the call - as you clearly made a bet in it, which is an agreement (and in our country, agreement over phone is an agreement), also most phone calls are stored for I think 2 or 4 weeks, so you could clearly start a lawsuit against them in my country.
For sure the guy who made the call would lose his job over it, though, and that would just be mean. Stainless had his fun already, no need to get lawyers involved. :)
Almost forgot to reply…
well I didn’t mean to sound like a **. I honestly never actually did that (I just mute sound and let them try to catch me), but I know a man who actually put them to court. He was receiving like 3 or 4 calls like this daily for almost a month.
Being him, I probably would do the same, it would just become too annoying.
