    My cellphone now displays "Possible Spam" for certain calls. Personally, if I don;t immediately recognize the area code, I'm suspicious so I answer in German.

            I also get incoming calls on my cell that say 'Scam Likely', my guess is that my carrier is familiar with the series of numbers that these creeps use.

                  No or no thank you in German Then when they continue I ask if they have a problem understanding German and hang up.

                      For people selling things like solar panels, or new windows for your house (we get a lot of ones that want to do home "improvements") I usually say, "I have a B-2 and an R-11 general and electrical contractor's license. I have guys for that." They hang up almost immediately.

                          Where's the fun in that? It is cathartic to release all your anger and negativity on some poor phone troll making minimum wage. Think of it as trying to better their lives by ruining their current job.

                            Life is too short. I've better things to do, it's like torturing frogs - a very juvenile occupation.
