A little while ago, I finally got The Call.
“Hello?” I heard a gabble of voices on the other end, obviously a boiler room call.
“Sir? Mumble garble findows bhmflg wugga woop.”
“Excuse me? I can hardly hear you with all the noise on your end.”
“Sir? This is Miriam, calling from Microsoft Windows Support. How are you today?”
“I’m doing great! How are you?”
She hung up immediately.
It must have been something in my voice. I must have sounded too eager. I should have said something like, “I’m doing lousy, my computer isn’t working and I need expert to help me install spyware on my Windows PC,” or would that have been leading too much?
I don’t know why they even bother calling this area code.
