    When somebody CALLS YOU, they are taking their chances as to what kind of language you use on the phone.

    The only thing off limit would be some kind of credible threat of physical violence (and even that, the 'credibility' would have to be proven).

    So let 'em have it.

    Yah yah yah I know they are just poor grunts trying to do their jobs.

    Guess what?

    They need to find other jobs.

      I got a robocall with a prerecorded message.  When I pressed "1" I was connected to an obviously paid (but unenthusiastic) operator to take my donation.  No need to let her have it.  

      No need to abuse anyone working as a call center operator.  I had thought I might get a true believer on the other end - didn't happen.

        thanking you as much as she could without losing the crappy job she has to have. I know I couldn't do it. I have a (much better) public service job where I'm not supposed to talk politics either and I struggle not to.
