Will they leave me alone, now?

Okay, that was fun! I just got one of “those” phone calls, the one where the caller tells me that he’s calling from Microsoft (he isn’t) because there’s a problem with Windows on my computer.

Me: What? No, my windows are fine, the housekeeper washes them every week.

Him: Microsoft Windows.

Me: My windows aren’t soft!

Him: On your computer.

Me (in my best old-lady voice): But my windows are in my walls…

Him: The Windows system, in your computer.

Me: I won a computer?

Him: No, missus, you have a computer with Windows virus.

Me: No, the only thing by my window is a plant, but I think it needs watering.

Him: I’m calling about your computer, your COMPUTER.

Me: When will it get here?

Him: You have it, your COMPUTER, it has a virus.

Me: That can’t be, I took my pills this morning.


Me: Yes, sometimes the pills help with that.

Him: (pause) Is your computer turned on? We need to fix the Windows.

Me: Well, let me go look at my windows. I’ll have to put the phone down, the cord won’t stretch that far.

Him: Missus, you don’t have to do that. … Hello? Hello? (mumbling) (click)

Me: hehehehehehehe………..
