Beating A Dead Corpse With This One

| Working | February 15, 2014

(We are on break at work when my coworker gets one of those dreaded ‘tech support’ scam calls. My coworker has a really weird sense of humor. We are walking back from a nearby grocery store when this happens.)

Coworker: *looking at her phone, then to me* “Oh look. It’s a telemarketer.” *answers it* “House of Corpses. How can I help you today?”

Telemarketer: “I, uh… have the wrong number.” *hangs up*

Coworker: “Awww… He didn’t want to play with me.” *mock pouts* “Wuss.”

Me: “‘House of Corpses’? Where do you come up with this stuff?”

Coworker: “My goal is to see how fast I can get them to hang up. But there are rules: no screaming bloody murder and I have to be at least marginally polite, unless it takes more than a minute, then they’re just… well.” *laughs* “We’ll see if he calls back…”
