How I make telemarketers hang up on me

I had an interesting phone call yesterday. The warranty on our computer is running out soon, and the company is pushing us to asking us if we want to extend it. The customer service guy (who didn't really have much of an accent, but spoke with a rather suspicious monotone voice) started with, "Good morning, blah blah blah."

I asked him, "You're not calling from the U.S., are you?"

He stammers for several moments ("Where is that on the script?"), then finally, reluctantly says, "No."

I continue, "...because it's 4:00 in the afternoon here--not morning."

He asks, "Is that a problem?"

I say, "No, go ahead."

He very quickly says, "I'm sorry. Have a good day." AND HANGS UP.

It's an odd feeling when the telemarketer hangs up on you.
