Butt Monkey telemarketers and silver

  1. Is ok if I come out to New York with a couple friends and we beat the hell out of the little useless butt monkeys that call trying to sell me silver, gold, etc. They use the private cover for caller Id, and then ramble. I set the phone down for 1 minute and could hear the clown asking me questions and then answering himself. I finally got back on, told him a few thoughts that were running through my head and hung up. Man, I hate that crap.

    Just tell him you sent all your money to a Nigerian Oil Widow, but soon you'll be rich beyond measure and you'll call him back. ;)
  3. I'm surprised brokers still cold call on residences to try and get business. With the do not call list and most people on it, how can they do it. I know institutional brokers cold call mutual funds and hedge funds and other institutional investors, but businesses are not on the do not call lists.

    I really don't understand how new retail brokers can make any money these days.
