I'm Hangin Up on Youuuuu
Why are people so blisteringly stupid?
CALLER: (Americanized Indian accent) Hello, this is James from Microsoft. Can I speak with the person who is responsible for your IT department.
ME: Sure. (transfers obvious sales call into voicemail of IT manager)
30 seconds later...
CALLER: Hello, you just transfered me to (name omitted). Is he the IT manager?
Had I not hung up, I might have said:
"No, I'm sorry. He's our baker."
"What's the weather like in India today?"
"You sound hot. What are you wearing?"
(sung to the tune of Hung Up) "Answering these calls never makes my day, I'll hang up! I'm hanging up on you..."
