anti-telemarketing counterscript - control the conversation

Boing Boing linked to this anti-telemarketing counterscript that I plan to print out and keep next to the kitchen phone.

When I have a kitchen phone.

As soon as the phone call begins it gives you questions to start asking that turn the interview back on the interviewer, changing the direction the magnifying glass is pointed in.

I did a stint as a telephone researcher while in college. It was boring and inaccurate, as I had to massage people's responses into categories. I quit.
