    Got a phone call earlier...

    foreign guy - "I'm ringing to tell you that your computer is not working properly..."

    me - "eh?"

    foreign guy - "...so if you switch your computer on I will take you through the steps on how to fix it..."

    me - "err, what company are you from?"

    foreign guy - "I'm from the company who you got your computer from. Please turn it on and I will fix it for you..."

    me - "ffs"

    I'm presuming he's ringing random numbers hoping to catch some senile OAP or a retard who panic, boot up their PC, and then proceed to give the helpful man on the phone their bank details so he can fix it.

    Just as well he didn't phone you on Saturday then, that senile OAP whose bum you were wiping while watching Dad's Army might have answered the phone for you.

    Anyway, are you sure it was a foreign person, and not Joey Barton?

    He couldn't do mine over the phone so he's coming round tomorrow to take it away and fix it in his workshop and if he can't fix it I'll get my £100 deposit back.

    They are genuine. They called me about enlarging my small cock, so their info is spot on. :moon

    Got 13 calls in one day off the fuckers last week. Tried to bar the number but it's not possible.

    The wife's with that telephone preference service but we still get bombarded by the cnuts,They usually ask for somebody that doesn't live here then go onto enquire who I am, that's usually enough to get my back up and give them a mouth full. Doesn't stop the fcukers though.

    TPS have no power whatsoever to stop companies making marketing calls. reputable companies will agree to abide by the wishes of people who register that they don't want to receive sales calls. Of course your average fly-by -night wide boy scamming cunts aren't going to be agreeing to that. It's impossible to stop because the cunts who are calling you might not even be part of the company who are wanting to get your money but just ringing to get possible sales leads to pass on to them.

    Best thing to do is leave them talking and go and make a cup of tea. At lead that's costing them money
