Web Of Lies

| Working | February 13, 2014

(I work on a technical support help desk. One day, I get a call from a phone number that is all zeros (000-000-0000). Confused, I answer the phone.)

Me: “Thank you for calling the [Company] help desk. This is [My Name].”

Caller: *with heavy foreign accent* “Hello? Yes. I am with Microsoft and I am calling to tell you there is a problem with your computer.”

(I think to myself, ‘did he not catch the part where he called a tech support center?’)

Me: *deciding to mess with him* “I had no idea! What do you need me to do?”

Caller: “I need you to go to your computer.”

Me: “Okay, I’m there.”

Caller: “Now please open a web browser.”

Me: “A what?”

Caller: “A web browser to go on the internet. Maybe you have Internet Explorer or Foxfire.”

Me: “What’s the internet? I don’t think I have one of those.”

Caller: *click*

Me: *to my coworkers* “Guys, you’ll never believe who just called the help desk…”
