Do you give your business to telemarketers?

I work a switchboard where I answer the phones for about 20 companies. This means having to deal with 20 times more telemarketers than the average person who answers calls for their company. They're trying to sell me office supplies, copiers, toners, long distance service, local phone service, internet service, etc.

I'm having trouble understanding why any company would do business with some one who's calling them unsolicited like this. I mean every company I've ever worked for already has vendors for all of these services. And if they weren't happy with the service or prices from their vendors, they would have switched vendors. Please enlighten me. Has anyone here ever done businesses with a vendor or company that called you unsolicited at your place of work? What made you decide to give them your business?
