Last Monday husband took a call on the land line from a lady claiming to be from Microsoft, and telling him the call is about the problem with our computer. This subject comes up frequently on our local radio and seems the scammers try to obtain personal details from you and relieve you of your money. He curtly told her she was not from Microsoft but was trying to scam him. He told her where to go. The second word being Off.
An hour later there is another call from the same number. It stopped before he could get to the phone. I told him I would take the call next time. Sure enough, it came about half an hour later. I said Hello a couple of times but there was a lot of background noise and no connection. Next time I was really annoyed as I had just started to nod off in the chair.
I answered, and when she began to tell me she was from Microsoft and there was a problem with my computer, I said “ah yes. You phoned before, didn’t you?”. She didn’t reply but started on about the computer again. I don’t know where it came from, but I suddenly raised my voice and accused her of having an affair with my husband!!!
After a stunned silence on other end, I repeated it. “You are, aren’t you?!” in an angry voice. She sounded most indignant and tried to protest. I heard " I most certainly am not!". I wouldn’t let her talk before finishing off with telling her to stay away from my husband and not to call this number again!
My husband was almost on his knees, crying with laughter and disbelief at what he’d just listened to. Oh boy did it feel good!!!
