Foreigners masquerading as Englishmen!

Recommended Posts

I'm sure i'm not alone in this but i keep getting calls from people with thick Punjabi accents claiming to be called Mike or Paul! They are trying to give me an apparently free camera phone!

 

It's not just phone companies either, i had a call from "Mary" (from Rawalpindi no doubt) who wanted me to take out a loan for 25k, i told her my name was in fact Ranjit and therefore she should know i couldn't afford such a loan and kindly asked her not to call so late as i'm in the middle of shutting up my corner-shop! ;)

When we were in Singapore, my dad had a Singaporean secretary..... called Doris. Her real name was Siewkhim, but if you pronounced it wrongly then it meant something rude/insulting or something, so she chose the name Doris instead.

 

Doris.

 

!!

 

Well, there's my story for the night.

As soon as I recognise one of these calls I do the following:

 

"Hang on while I get a pen"

 

 

I then leave the phone.

Probably not another wank, statistically they likely interruped him during one! And dependng on their timing they may get the idea he's very excited abot their offer!
