I used to get those several times a week. One day, I actually held on and talked to the sales rep. Nice guy, and I enjoyed our chat. I even tried to buy the warranty. As it turns out, my 20-years-old Toyota doesn't qualify. Something about 375,000 miles that scared them off. I don't get it.

I don't get those calls anymore. Maybe I should call them about the cars I have on blocks since they don't accrue a lot of miles?

I signed up for a whole house security system. Bought all the bells and whistles. Any thing he mentioned, I bought. After over an hour I asked if it mattered that I rented and I'd have to talk to my landlord.. he freaked.

I was laid off and bored as hell and had all the time in the world..

Got a call from India a few weeks ago. They said they're the IRS, and I am behind on my taxes., and needed to send gift cards to them to pay the debt. I said my taxes were already paid. They said they are sending the sheriff's department to arrest me. I told them to tell the sheriff to hurry up, because I am leaving in 25 minutes to run errands. He got pissed and hung up.

I got one of those asking if I was interested in vacation information. I said that would be great to which they asked when I wanted to go. I said it had to be this week or in 3-5 years with good behavior. They said they would call back in a couple years and see if I’m still interested.

I get at least a couple of calls a day in Chinese. More frustrating, I get no less than 10 calls a day from the “Social Security administration” canceling my Social Security number. Sucks because I have to answer my phone for work, can’t block them because they keep using different area codes

LOL, yes I've had those too.

Tonight I got a call about "my" alarm system. it went something like this... (me trying to imitate her thick Indian accent with my best Simpsons' Apu impression)...

Caller: Hello, is this Jack?
Me: What do want?
Caller: This is Susan (her name is clearly not Susan). I am calling about your alarm system.
Me: Oh my goodness! Is something wrong with my alarm system? (calling to my wife) Preetha... Preetha... Oh my goodness... There is something wrong with our alarm...
Caller (quickly shifting gears): No... Sir... Sir... There is nothing wrong with your alarm. But we need to update it. I have a special price for you on...
Me (interrupting): Oh my goodness. You mean the alarm I put in last month needs updating already? Preetha... Preetha...
Caller: Uh... No... It's fine... I will take you off the call list.
