After about seven or eight months peace, am I alone in getting a sudden upsurge in calls from 'Meecro-soft technical dept' - six in the last three days alone? The difference this time is they all speak Spanish.


I have always been polite and civil with them - I actually used to enjoy chatting to them, acting stupid, winding them up, wasting their time and generally trying to divert them from their script.

However, when I got the third one today he caught me on the wrong foot..................!!

I've had lots of those calls too Steve, but one was particularly funny.


The very polite lady explained that she was from Microsoft Technical Department. I interrupted her and said "No you're not, it's a scam".


Her truly eloquent reply was....


"Well f**k off then" !!


Charmed, I'm sure.

I got fed up with sales calls and as we only used the fixed line occasionally I cancelled it and went for an internet over wireless solution for about half the cost.

So far they've not found my mobile number!
