    I've had three of the same John, last one was this afternoon, they must think I came down in the last rain storm if they think I'll sit there letting them login to my pc. Usually an Indian accent.

    I answer them with "Sorry, all the Thunderbirds are out on reescues, please call later", otherwise whatever comes into my head, which often makes Wendy choke on her cuppa. The other day they hung up when I answered and said "village idiot, how can I help"
    Does get very annoying when it's every few minutes, that tends to get phone unplugged.

    Since joining ive had about 2 calls. Once you start asking them for the name and address of the company they are calling from the line soon goes dead, lol.
