When I was a lad I was pursued by an insurance salesman that would not take no for an answer. He demanded an appointment and an address. I sent him to the 4th Reich motorcycle club, which was a few blocks form my apartment. I'm not sure how it went, but he quit calling.

Yes, I have achieved work / life balance.

If possible, I try "I'm just paying cash" and that stops the questions about half the time.

When they insist, I try to work with those intrusive questions, since the questioner really has no choice but to ask them.

My name is John Cash (I pay cash for a large portion of my purchases).
My address is 79 Wistful Vista (I loved the old Fibber McGee & Molly radio show).
My city is Springfield (of course), and there really is one not that far away.
My phone number is a local area code and whatever random numbers I think of.
My email is (Steve Case was a founder of AOL).

I give 'em my old work address. Since these lists are for all eternity I know they'll never forget me where I used to work.
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.

I do the same, except I give them a bogus name so the old co-workers gave no clue how all that junk mail shows up. Years ago, my co-workers and I would give them our boss's name and home address so he got bombarded!
