I often get calls from outside Switzerland, trying to sell me a new kitchen. Just say something rude and hang up.

I started to get marketing calls and asked where they were, if it was hot and what they were wearing if they had any sweaty bits what type of underwear etc the calls stopped after about two weeks.
