we all get them

I have to say this guy was more polite than I have been with them on the phone

If really, truly want them to stop calling you, there are 4 magic words to tell them and they will never call you back. Just tell them this....

I'M OUT OF BUSINESS.

I'm getting harassed by Allstate insurance...
The marketing calls have become so ridiculous I don't answer the phone anymore, if a customer calls they usually leave a VM.
I may lose some business but I can't get any work done!

That"s what I do. If I'm not sure it's work, I don't answer. I lose some work, but I don't care.
Interestingly I've found that 99% of the missed calls that don't leave a message are worthless calls anyway.
I had one a couple of days ago, called no VM so I called her back.
1500 sq ft, furnished house, new T&G wanted paint spots removed.
I asked how big an area, she said it was everywhere.
I said I could come out and give an estimate, then asked if she had a budget.
She said "Well if it's gonna be like $500 then forget it."
She was supposed to text me some photos, never heard back.
