(My parents have always been adamant about using Windows computers since they could afford a home system back in ’98. I see an out of area number calling and I answer. My parents are sitting at the table nearby, eating.)

Me: “Hello?”

(I hear silence so I repeat saying “hello” until I hear a click and the chatter of a call center.)

Scammer: “Hello I am calling from [gibberish] technical support.”

Me: “I’m sorry, what technical support?”

Scammer: “Windows technical support! Your Windows computer has been given a signal that it has a virus.”

Me: “I’m sorry sir, but we use Mac OS.”

(My parents loudly start cracking up.)

Scammer: “Oh! We support Mac systems as well.”

Me: *in a cheerful, sweet, sarcastic voice* “I’m sorry, sir, but I know Windows does not offer support to Mac! You might want to check on that, bye.” *hang up*

(My parents continue to laugh; my dad is clutching his sides from laughing so hard. My mom wipes a tear from her eye.)

Mom: “Dear, you’re answering those calls from now on.”
