Think this will take off with the credit crunch?
We have a couple of phone droids chasing for imaginary debts at the moment. The sort who hide behind the Data Protection Act to avoid telling you who they are and what its about.
After having them slam the phone down on me several times they now get one of the following.
3 year old talking about her birthday cake.
Devil dog recording played on repeat from my N95.
A blank refusal to reveal any information on who lives at the address due to the data protection act.
Demands to know who they are, a direct phone line number and their name before I answer anything.
Banana phone song.
Penis is the proper word Song.
The internet is for porn song.
Me calling for mommy continually until they hang up. (mommy is that you mommy? do you know where my mommy is? This upsets them as I am 38 years old).
If they are phoning from HBOS I demand to speak to someone who is not going to loose their job after the coming merger
I thought they were all valid ways of answering the phone anyway!
I am hoping you ahve a deep gravelly voice. Otherwise it would totally kill the thing in my headMe calling for mommy continually until they hang up. (mommy is that you mommy? do you know where my mommy is? This upsets them as I am 38 years old).
Droid Can I speak to Miss *******.
Me Whos calling please?
Droid Albion Finance.
Me I will need your parent company, direct dial phone number and name please.
Droid ITS A PRIVATE BUSINESS MATTER, IS MISS ***** THERE?
ME I'M NOT HAVING A PHONE DROID TALK TO ME LIKE THAT!
I slammed the phone down. and chuckled for ages.
The previous one got funny when I wanted the parent company and refused to tell me so I pretended to go off my trolly ranted about the data protection act and threw the phone down on him.
The joys of droid baiting.
I just put a falsetto voice almost immeadiately after they ask for a female member of the household. Then dare them to prove I am not Miss TechMonkey
I am also thinking of getting a script together, like the tiscali droids, that would be fun. Also including as many web meme references as possible.
All I get's a login box and I really don't have time to go through the registration process, what's it all about?
Worked a treat, droid fell at first hurdle, kept saying she was Albion Finance. She got very frustrated with the final reply of "I'm sorry, but the information you want is unavailable to you" (when asking for my wife). Absolute gold.
After another night of fending off calls I had a brain wave. Since I already run a small business I thought why not use this script>
