Thread Name: BS: Maddening phone call surveys
Subject: RE: BS: Maddening phone call surveys
Sometimes, when these people call, I say, 'sorry but I think that you need to speak to my father'. I then shout, 'Dad!' and leave the phone off the hook for 10 or 15 minutes.

With the "Microsoft" people I sometimes have some fun. On one occasion, I pretended to go along with the woman on the line and to follow her instructions. When she said, 'what can you see on the screen?', I told her that I could see a duck; 'you've programmed a duck into my computer, please let me speak to your supervisor!' When the supervisor came on the line, I shouted, 'your operative has programmed a duck into my computer!' I ran out of absurdities at this point and hung up.

A "Microsoft" person rang the other night and I demanded that he put me through to 'Mr Gates, the Head of Windows', immediately! He hung up.
