No you can't be too rude. Sure, it's their job and that isn't anyone's idea of a dream job, but when you sign up for a job that requires you to routinely piss people off you can't be surprised when some of those people express that to you.
I don't really get those spam-like calls on my cell. I don't have a landline now, but I did for 12 months (it was effectively free for a year-long bundle with my internet provider), and I got a ton with it. I also got a LOT of calls from debt collectors. Maybe that number was previously associated with someone that legitimately didn't pay her bills, but it did no good explaining that the number was no longer associated with the person they were trying to reach. At the beginning I even called back when they left messages to give them the opportunity to correct this (and hopefully not call me relentlessly anymore) but that was useless. I just resorted to letting every call go to voicemail. Now you'd have to pay me to take a landline again.
