    Which sex are you more likely to listen to, and if it's a charity, give?
    I've found that the ladies i've worked with collect FAR more than me in one sitting. Tell me it's not my technique! [​IMG]
    EDIT: Doesn't this thing have a poll feature? [​IMG]

    Well, most of the charities I hear from are guys. Come to think of it, there haven't been that many calls from girls altogether. Hmmmm, maybe it's Kansas in general.

    I politely dismiss telemarketers, be they male or female.
    And yes, there is a poll feature - but we generally save those for special occasions. [​IMG]

    Well I worked as a telemarketer for about 3 weeks. I in the top 3 sellers for all but 2 of the days I was working. I eventually quit because I felt bad about the entire thing.

    Some days a female was the top seller and other days it was a male. I have to say that gender didn't seem to have any effect on people's ability to sell.

    I can give a polite "I'm not interested" as I hang up the phone to either sex.
