I was just stepping into the shower this morning when my SO handed me the
phone, telling me it was someone from a long distance company.  I was eager
to get into the shower; my conversation went like this:

Me:  Hello?
Him: Hello, sir.  I'm from <Major long distance carrier>.  How would
     you like to save money off your long distance calling?
Me:  If I told you that I was very happy with my current carrier, would
     that preclude any further conversation?
Him: Actually, no, sir.  I have to hear a certain number of "no's" before
     I let you go.
Me:  No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Him: Have a nice day, sir. <Click>
