I usually say "NIL", but if it's no mult, I don't get too 
crazy over it...if it's a mult, I try real hard to make the 
guy work me again.  Sometimes, I'll just let it go 
entirely, satisfied in the knowledge that the other guy is 
going to lose a Q.

Odds are if you call me and you're in my log, I'm just 
going to work you again and not even mention it.  That's by 
far the best way to handle it.

Arguing about it slows everybody down.  If I was stupid 
enough to refuse to work you again and I'm not in your log, 
my stupidity gets repayed at log-checking time with an NIL.

As they say, YMMV...but it shouldn't!
