The person who rings you may well not be the real culprit ...

The people who ring you are not doing it out of the goodness of their own hearts - they are doing to make money. They choose to do the job and accept payment for it. I agree that I have better things to do. I don't see why I should give my free time, unpaid, to help them make a living.

Stringing someone along may be seen as impolite but it's not all one-sided. On more than one occasion, I have quickly and politely explained why I do not need the services that the caller is offering, only to receive a mouthful of abuse before I am abruptly cut off.
