Unwanted Caller Insults Ancient Aristocrat..

Recommended Posts

Interesting call yesterday from an Indian (?) call centre.

He requested my name...

I respond with a well-practiced imitation of the Dowager Duchess from Downton Abbey - high-pitched; imperious; querulous..

"And who are you, young man..?"

He repeats his request for my name...

The Duchess repeats her question...

He tells me to "**** off"!

Made my morning...

I used to get calls from an Indian call center trying to increase the services I was already subscribed to.

They'd ask me security questions. wtf? I'd tell them I don't give out information to unsolicited phone calls. They'd reply that they couldn't continue without confirming my identity. 'I'm ok with not continuing.'

Does anyone know if blowing a whistle down the phone is actually that unpleasant for the other end? I've always wanted to try it

Rape Alarm? That'll do it.

Seems appropriate too, somehow.


Granted this story is from germany

Woman fined for blowing whistle into phone


but I see no reason why in english law if you cause injury to a person's hearing or eardrum, you cannot be charged with ABH
