Ring, Ring... Ring, Ring

I'm sleeping in, as usual, when the phone rings and wakes me up.  There's a guy with a heavy Indian accent on the other end, who I expect is going to tell me he's from Microsoft and alert me that my computer has a virus (I've had fun with them on that one too, let me tell you).  This time, he's and agent from the US Dept of Treasury and his name is Steve Walker - you have to chuckle to hear someone with this heavy accent say his name is Steve Walker.

SW: Good Morning. Is this Peter Schmidt?

Me: Yes, it is, Good Morning to you.

SW: This is Agent Steve Walker with the US Dept. of Treasury.  There has been a fine assessed to you for non-payment of back taxes.

At this point, I'm asking myself should I just hang up or have some fun... normally these guys will lie for a half hour if you pretend you believe them...

Me: Well, good morning to you, Mr. Walker.

SW: Thank you.

Me: How are you on this fine morning?

SW: (sounds confused, doesn't know how to answer) Fine, thank you.

Me: Did you pray to God this morning?

SW: Yes.

Me: Did you pray that He would make you an honest man?

SW: Yes.

Me:  Well you better tell Him to hurry up, because YOU'RE A LYING SACK OF SH|T!!!

Line goes dead.  I start my day with a smile on my face.




What kind of stupid calls do you all get and how do you like to deal with them?

    I deal with this specific scam all the time at my job, poor saps falling for it and buying thousands of dollars in itunes gift cards and then drained. And they want Apple to fix it.... REALLY?! Sorry you had to deal with this BS but glad you got some fun out of it Peter!

    Thanks for the morning laugh, Peetah
    It should take a lot less than that to make you spit that swill... 

    Love you, DZR.

    Now go ban yourself.  <3

    Oh so it's you that gave me that disagree. 

    I'm telling on you.

    a spider woke up the whole neighborhood at 1:30 this morning by setting off the burglar alarm in my shop. Your neighbors were luckier than mine.

    Yeah, the spider had caught a large fly, right in front of the sensor.
