I've just had a great phone call from someone from "Microsoft 10 Windows Technical Support Help Desk" using the NZ number 06 864 3267 (I love caller ID).
Of course knowing fully well that the Microsoft 10 Windows Technical Support Help Desk wouldn't be ringing me because 1. They wouldn't know me from a bar of soap, and 2. All our computers at home run Mac OS and 3. Why would Microsoft be ringing me at home anyway? I decided to have as much fun as I could.
After being told that I have ..picked up a "virus software program" from visiting Facebook and Twitter, I knew where we were about to head. The conversation went along the lines of:
Caller: "What do you see on the screen?"
Me: "Its black."
Caller: "You mean its turned off"
Me: "I don't know, how do I know its turned off?"
Caller: "Can you turn it on for me please?"
Me: "How do I do that?"
Caller: "You push the on button."
Me: "What on button?"
Caller (getting a bit upset): "The button to turn it on."
Me: "Oh, you mean the hammer beside me?"
Caller (Now very upset as this isn't going to plan): "Use the f****** hammer to hit yourself in the head" (I didn't think Technical Support Help Desks were so rude ).
Me: "Good bye" and hung up.
Anyone else find doing this sort of thing fun?
