35. LOL! Twice I've been accused of not being the person I really was...
A couple of times a CC company has called my wife about a payment past due. I've learned to be aloof now, asking for them to ID themselves BEFORE I offer any information (in the past I would say "No, she's not here. Who shall I say is calling?" but they would just hang up). However, twice I've been accused of not being who I really am, possibly because of this aloofness. Now this is a CC company that can speak to the spouse as well as the card holder. The conversations have gone on as such:

phone rings

ME: "Hello?"
THEM: "Is Mrs. KansDem there?"
ME: "Who shall I say is calling?"
THEM: "I want to speak to Mrs. KansDem..."
ME: "Who is this?"
THEM: "It's a business matter..."
ME: "Who do you represent?" or "What company is this?"
THEM: "I need to talk with Mrs. KansDem about a business matter."
ME: "Who shall I say is calling?"
THEM: "Are you her husband""
ME: "Uh...yeah...yeah...I'm 'her husband'" (I like to stretch this out so as to make it sound like I'm contemplating the reaction to claiming I'm her husband, like I'm making a calcuated move).
THEM: "No you're not..."
ME: "But I am. I'm really her husband."
THEM: "I don't believe you."
ME: "Honest. I'm Mrs. KansDem's husband!"
THEM: "I still don't believe you..."

they then hang up.

It's a riot to try to convince one of this yahoos that I'm really the person I am!
