I got one of those today, some guy with a thick Indian accent... instead of calling him names, as would I have done, I just laughed and asked him how the weather was India... told him  I loved India, but I wasn't falling for his spiel. We both laughed, and that was the end of it.

I get one of those on the average of once a week.

It's always my "Windows Computer" that's being a bad, bad boy.

So I ask them, "WHICH Windows Computer?  I have 3 running Windows 7, 1 running Windows XP Pro, 1 running Windows XP Home, 1 running Windows 2000, and 1 running Windows 98SE.  Which one is causing the issue?"

[And I'm not lying to them, although the WXP/H, W2K & W98SE machines have been sitting on the shelf for years now]

From there, I can drive them nutz chasing their tail.  Usually get them so frustrated that they hang up in 15 minutes or less (still doesn't save me any money on my car insurance, though).

Although, if I'm not in the mood, I just hang up on them.
