My little Russian doll — 19 Comments

  1. Sounds like her handler probably gave her a good beating after the call, for not getting your details. You heartless old man 🙂

  2. There really isn’t any such thing as a grouchy old person.

    The actual truth is that once you get old, you stop being polite and start being honest.

  3. “And the hand set [or whatever you call it]

    Often referred to as a “POT Phone” – “Plain Old Telephone”…

    • And here was I thinking that Pot meant something else altogether. A bit like STD?

      • Wot – “Subscriber Trunk Dialling” ? There’s another in a similar (telecoms line): ISDN, which, if memory serves me correctly, meant “Integrated Services Digital Network”. It was the forerunner of Broadband, when home computing was in it’s infancy. But some wag renamed it “Innovations Subscribers Don’t Need”…

  4. Probably a Tatiana who then morphs into Rosa Klebb. I reckon you did the right thing.

  5. I’m a bit jealous at this point. You seem to get all the good cold calls while me and mine are stuck with calls referring to car warranty expirations, Medicare plan B, and “Don’t hang up, this is a very important call-*click*. Not even one of those, “There’s something wrong with your Windows…” type calls. And even the others have slacked off of late. Here I am all ready to be impolite and all we get are calls from people we actually know–all two of ’em.

    • Mail me your phone number and I’ll pass it on to anyone who calls me.

      Anyways, I gave her full number in my scribble including the international code. Feel free to call her. You can even mention my name though that could possibly backfire …
