Fun with telemarketers

I canceled my service at Dish Network about nine months ago, because the satellite dish got removed to install a new roof and I wasn't watching TV anyway, so I didn't want to keep paying the monthly fee. I plugged $10 rabbit ears into my TV and now I get anywhere from 2.3 to 15.249 channels depending on the weather, the time of day, and whether the moon is in Taurus. I channel-surf maybe a couple times a month.

Tonight a telemarketer calls me.

Telemarketer from Dish Network: "Why did you cancel your service?"
Me: "I pretty much stopped watching TV, so..."
Telemarketer: "But don't you think you might want to watch a little bit of TV? At a really cheap price?"
Me: "I dunno, but I don't want to restart my Dish service."
Telemarketer: "But is there a specific reason why you canceled your service?"
Me: .....
(*imagines what the next 10 minutes will be like if I start explaining it*)
(*hangs up*)

Why yes, that's exactly what I am doing and, amazing as you might find this, I don't need Dish to do so. Bye.

I know it's not part of a telemarketer's job to easily take no for an answer, but I've found it really irksome to deal with their persistence.

Exactly.
