It's fine to silently hang up on a telemarketer because they are not making a social call (they only want money) and they never stop to let you get a word in, anyway. There is never an excuse for being verbally abusive, though. That is terrible. Just hang up without a word like a civilized human being.DH's bro gets a fiendish delight in telling them to "get cancer and die" or other cheerful(?) comebacks. He brags when he makes a telemarketer cry.
