    Telemarketers, at least used car salesmen don't invade my home. I'm on a "do not call list" and they still call.

    Being a used car salesman or a telemarketer only says one thing. They are willing to work...the stigma attached to them is a conditioned perception.

    Telemarketers are definitely worse.  We choose to talk to used car salesmen.  We would never choose to talk to a telemarketer.

    Neither, actually

    Both are people looking to earn an honest living. Both sell things people need. And, if we don't want to speak to either of the, we don't have to...

    Telemarketers, because they invade your personal space in your home, usually at the most innoportune times like dinner hour, or when you're getting ready to leave for an important appointment.
    We have our number on the national "do not call" registry.  So, when they call, I just cut them off, tell them that, and remind them that it's a $50 fine for each call after being notified.  Then I hang up.

    Used car salesmen don't come knocking at your door--it's YOUR CHOICE to visit their place of business, so you either learn how to deal with their shenanigans, or do without their wares.

    I try very hard to see them as people who are desperately trying to earn a living, possibly in a business they might not choose otherwise.  I also think it depends on the used car salesperson...they are not all the caricatures we see on TV, etc.

    I am on a do not call list but they still call...I simply hang up.  I have actually gotten calls after 11 PM.  Now that cross the line because I don't care where they are they should check the time zone..... for that reason I will say telemarketers are the worse.
