What is the most annoying thing a prospect says on the phone? (Cold call scenario)

I get most annoyed with the "I'm in a meeting". Either A. you are in a meeting and you are a jackass for answering your phone or B. you aren't. you are a liar and very bad at it

Variations of "I don't have access to my calendar, let me get back to you." If you don't get the meeting confirmed then and there, the chances of it ever happening drop significantly.Β
