I have various methods of dealing with those people who call and ask for the owner. If you just hang up they will keep calling later anyway.
Sometimes I give them a fake name and after a week or so I start getting calls for that bogus name, so I know is is only a sales call. But sometimes they still just ask for the owner.

This morning I was in an especially silly mood and got one of the calls. It went like this:

Hello, I am_______, and looking for the owner.
Oh? well, so are we!
(a short pause) Uhhhh...He is not there?
No.
Do you know when he will be back?
We are not sure, it depends on what the judge says. It could be from 1 to 10 years.
(long pause)... uhhh.. well.. uhhhh,, you have a great day!

I love it! If I see it on caller-id, and I'm in the mood, sometimes I say in a loud tone, "Hello Damit, and I mean it, you'd better have a darn good reason for calling." It works. Sometimes if I'm in a prankster mood with friends, I just say, "Joe's bar and grill, can I take your order please?" My favorite, with silly close friends of mine is, "Joe's wrecker service, you wreck em, we pull em." Thanks for sharing and being a part of the GG community and family, rg sends!
