    Default "BT" Helpdesk

    1 hour ago.

    *Ring Ring* *Ring Ring*

    Me: Hello
    *pause*
    Other: Hi Yes my name is ... I'm from BT
    Me: Hi
    Other: You have people on your internet
    Me: Oh really, that's not good
    Other: Yes, are you in-front of your pc?
    Me: Yes, but wait a minute, what's your telephone number
    Other: Why you need my telephone number
    Me: So I can phone you back at BT
    Other: what you need to phone me for
    Me: Because you don't work for BT you *ickhead*, just *uck off and get a proper *ucking job, you *wat,
    Other..........you *uck off too



    Actually enjoyed the exchange. He's lucky because I was busy and the last guy that tried it, I managed to keep on the phone for 20 mins(15 of which on hold)before telling him where to go.

    Yeh. Always getting calls from "BT" or my "internet provider". Don't have your patience, I just swear and slam the phone down.

    I got one of these tossers and just hung up on him as he was in mid spiel. He then phoned back.

    It's ways good fun to waste their time. It's a public service, preventing them from scamming people who could be misled.

    I just keep them going and then tell them that I have a Mac.

    That normally stresses them out.

    I tell 'em I'm running Win3.11.

    The bafflement is extreme in doing the needful.

    I once told them I didn't have a computer because the electromagnetic waves they give off causes cancer and I went on try and sell them some healing crystals to protect them from the very dangerous work they're doing

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
