When you get tired of this just let me know and I'll move on.  This is another way of getting your message across to them.  I believe I'm making headway what do you think?


Just when I thought my Indian tech support guys had had enough of my nonsense and it was safe to accept unidentified numbers again, I was wrong....oh so wrong. "Hello sir. This is Richard from Microsoft Windows to alert you to a problem that you're having with your computer. Am I speaking to the owner of the computer in your home?" "Yes." I answer. " I own my windows."

"Do you install the windows yourself or will you send somebody local?" Richard's irritation becomes apparent when he asks me. "Sir are you deaf and dumb?" I guess Indians don't understand that that's a completely insensitive question but I answer anyway, "Yes, Richard. I'm probably a little bit of both. Which are you?" Click. "Richard, Richard.

Love it! Do you think 'Richard' will escalate your file to a more aggressive telemarketer/scammer? Keep up the reports; these are encouraging that soon you will have thermopane windows

Love it, James... haven't had one of those calls to "have fun with," myself. I'm a bit envious.

Haven't stopped laughing yet. I get those calls twice a week and I am never as nice and kind as you are.  Maybe your approach will work better. I should be testing out the theory later today.
