You know those call centres based in india?

I had a call and an indian sounding woman, she asked very rudely 'Is this a BT telephone line?' , and I said no, then she says 'When is the owner of the BT telephone going to be here?'

I really got confused then and hung up.

Anyone else has strange calls from them?

I always insist that they put someone who can speak ENGLISH on the phone.:hea:

I am by no means racist or anything, its just that, how on earth can someone you cant even understand, help you with a problem.:confused:

Especially when you have to start explaining things LETTER by LETTER(like your name) and your saying "F" and their going... did you say "P"?...:hea: ..:hea: ..:hea: AAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH.

yea thats great, but it hardly counts as a weird call! Maybe if she turned it to a man half way through then tell me about it :D

this indian person phoned up my mum, and tried to sell her stuff, and then when she said that its pointless and that she wont buy anything he replied.

O.K but whilst your here'

I get that problem with English people (since my name is double-barrel and 20 letters long). I can't imagine what it's like with foreigners. I can't understand why people can't get their head around having two surnames.

I'd better take this to the frustration thread. :p

Anyway, I have had several, but I've heard my step-dad on the phone having much funnier ones. He stays on and has some fun, giving fake names and such. :D Then he ends by putting the phone right up to his mouth and blowing on it.

I have a weird feeling like I've told that story before and totally forgotten about it. :confused:

Did you know that in those Indian call centres they make the workers watch episodes of Eastenders to help them understand British culture? I saw it on the news. :D

Well, Me and My Mum rang up to NTL and this guy from Pakistan answered. It was awful. We couldn't make a word of what he was saying and he cost us £10 of the phone bill and he never helped us.
