Well, where i work our telephone numbers are pretty consistent, to the point where you can tell if someone is war dialling on a cold call campaign as they just go from one number to another with the same old banter...just had a call from a woman in India saying that their records indicate that someone has had an accident on this number... After having the phone slammed down on her about 10 times, she probably thought she hit the jackpot with me...
I said "yes, that's correct, i work at the Springfield Nuclear power facility and i had a small incident two months ago"
She said "And the nature of the accident?"
I said "Accidental exposure to illudium PU-36, its a radiological element essential in modulator work" ( that's a reference to Marvin the Martian )
She said "And did you file a claim?"
I said "No claim filed as yet, im awaiting the medical report from Dr Feelgood, my private physician"
She Asks "what's the nature of the ailment?"
I said " well, i tend to glow a bit in the evenings, especially after a shower with radox shower gel, we use this for decontamination after work, and as i groom myself, i find hairballs growing in the strangest of places, i'm told this isn't normal. The other thing is that, i can also now see behind myself owing to the third eye that has recently started to grown on the rearward facing side of my head, something our my family lawyer says should get about $40 million in compensation alone, there are other things, but i don't want to upset you by describing them.
She said "ok, would you like us to proceed with claim on your behalf? it won't take long to start this"
I said "Yes, i think i would, what details do you need?"
They then went on to ask name, age, address, and other details which i happily supplied with a knowing grin as i was surfing a Warner Bros web page for inspiration..
She then said that owing to the large sum of potential compensation, that she would have to refer this to her manager who would want to most likely assign a team of specialists to assist me. lol
I gotta say, i really brightened up a boring afternoon
