Outsourced


Just as I thought I was "winning", they keep calling me back...

Local time: 9:30 pm

"Jennifer": May I speak to Racnaroth Cryptopeles?
Me: Who?
Jennifer: *giggles* Am I pronouncing that correctly?
Me: Sure, if you're looking for Racnaroth Cryptopeles.
Jennifer: We need a moderate payment of 1.50.
Me: If I pay a "moderate" one dollar fifty you'll stop calling me?
Jennifer: *GIGGLES HYSTERICALLY* Noooooooooou!!! A payment of $150 is needed.
Me: You realize that I cancelled your services 3 months ago?
Jennifer: *typing*
Me: Where are you calling from?
Jennifer: St. Louis, Ohio.
Me: They moved St. Louis to Ohio? No wonder...
Jennifer: *click*

Sigh.

      Why can't call centers call us with great quotes?

      Not in the curriculum training script class.
      Pronouncing our last names might be a start.

  3. Racnaroth sounds like he could be related to you. Maybe you should look him up.

    1. Good thinking! I should. Does he have a broadsword, crossbow or portal gun?

    2. All of the above, obviously.

    3. Yeah. Sure. But in RL I can't lug all of that.
      A portal gun however could send them to China.
      Hmmm...*raises eyebrow, pets cat*

  4. Hubby has found a new response for the "hello...I am calling about a problem on your computer" people..
    he says.. "I don't have a computer"
    "ah you have laptop then?"..
    he then says, "I don't have a laptop..."..
    ..."Oh... well F**K off then!" *CLICK!*

  5. This "Jennifer" person sounds hot! You should have taken her number. Oh wait, she already has yours.

    I'm a little perplexed over all the giggling. Was that some form of a diversion tactic? You should have asked her the success rate of this scam.

      Probably a high success rate. Irritating, because I canceled them 3 months ago, so they would have my number.
      Makes for a lazy post when I don't have time to write.:)
