How They Say No

Well, I'm 89,
and I'm losing interest in just about everything.

Look, I'm doing income taxes,
I'm not interested,
go to hell!

At my age? I'm 84 years old.
I've got my television and my newspaper and my dog,
and I'm satisfied.

I'm busy eatin' lunch.

I don't want you to send it to me.
I don't want it.

We don't like to get involved with these things,
but thank you for talking about it.

I just don't buy those kinds of things.

I'm a retired person,
rather elderly,
and I'd rather not right now.

We get caught,
becuz we forget to return these things,
and then we have to pay for it,
so we'd rather not.

I don't want it.

I've got all I can do right here.

I don't think so.

I don't want to buy anything.

I'd rather you not send it.

No, don't send it to me.

I have too many things to do.

I don't think we could do it at this time.

Thank you
but no thank you.

I'd probably wanna buy it
but I really can't afford it.

Oh no please don't.

Don't bother,
don't bother.

I don't want to waste your time.

We're retired,
we can only handle so much.

Sir! Sir! Sir! Sir!
We won't be home to receive it.

I'm sure I would like it,
but I just got out of the hospital,
and I don't think I could handle anything like that.

We're not interested,
thank you.

I don't believe I care for it.
I'm sorry.

No, at this time, I'm really not interested.

I don't think I'm interested,
thank you.

I just got out of the hospital
and I don't feel up to anything.

I don't have a video.

No, don't send it!

Let me stop you right here:
I don't have a video.

I just don't want it, thank you.

My dad's not here,
but I guess I can go ahead and speak on his behalf:
He probably wouldn't be interested
becuz we don't have a VCR.

I don't think I want to partake in it
becuz I won't be available.

Uh, don't even send it,
becuz I'm not going to be living here...
I'm going to be at college,
and I don't even have a mailbox.

No, we get the magazine already,
and we're satisfied with that.

I don't think I would be interested,
thank you.

Don't send me anything becuz I am not going to buy.

No, I subscribe to Nat'l Geo for my son.

We watch the Nat'l Geo channel all the time,
so we're OK.

Well, I'm not really interested.

No thank you,
but thanks anyway.

Uh, I don't think so.
Thank you very much.

I'm not really interested,
so don't send it.

Thank you,
I don't want any of them.
Thank you for calling though.

No, really,
I don't want to have to be bothered returning it,
so I'm not interested.

I'm sorry,
I don't take phone sales calls like this.

Well, I don't think you have to send it out
becuz that would just obligate me to return it to you.

I think I'm just going to say no,
becuz if it does come here
it's just one more thing.

My husband would want to buy it,
but I'm the one on the hook here.

Let me stop you right now.
My financial situation will not warrant me to purchase anything.

I'm not interested.

I don't think we'll be interested.

We're probably not going to take it.
You're probably wasting your time.

We can't do it right now;
if you come back in February or March
we might be able to,
but not now.

I don't think so,
I don't want to get involved with that right now.

Well, I tell you,
I'm retired,
and I'm in the process of relocating
to a smaller home,
and I think for the time being
we need to limit this kind of thing,
so we'll pass on it this time.

[All of these refusals were collected by me
during a single 5 1/2 hour shift on January 2, 1996.]
