Dish Network Telemarketer Tells You To Shut Up

Here’s a new sales tactic from Dish Network. When they interrupt your dinner to sell you satellite TV, and you politely decline, they will win you over by telling you to shut up.

Reader Robin says:

A sales rep. from “Dish Network” just called my home. I told him, “No thank you we have Direct tv”.

He replied, “Oh we have a better deal”.

“No, thank you”, I said.

He ended the sales pitch with, “No, no, no, shut up”.

Wow! I shouldn’t be surprised after reading Consumerist, but I was so shocked I just had to share.

You should get on the Do Not Call list. That’s the consumer’s way of telling Dish Network, “No. You shut up.”
