We all receive calls from call centre agents who try to sell us something.

Question: Do you ever buy products from these call centre agents?

No. I would immediately not buy anything from them if they call me without me first having made an inquiry about said product.

+1

Unless I asked them to call me regarding a product they can forget about selling me anything. I don't even listen to the pitch.

"Do you even let them get more than one sentence into their sales pitch?"

I don't.

But I try polite when declining because I know these people are just trying to make a living.

Of course some of them don't know when to stop. So I'll just drop the call.

Nope, Don't even listen to the banter.

I hate those call centre agents where you can actually hear them reading off a script

It was funny the one time I actually received a call

Call agent: Am I speaking with Mr Cash Cow?
Me: Well since you phoned me on my phone you should be
Call Agent: It is good to speak to you Mr Cash Cow and how are you?
Me: I'm Fine
Call Agent: I am great, thanks for asking
Me: I didn't ask

Put phone down.

If I need something I know how to google.

I don't even answer calls that being with 031 or private numbers... On the odd occasion one gets through it's "no thanks, not interested *click*"

No, if I want something I'll go to the store/branch myself and get what I want, or call in the case of ISP's, etc.
