The telephone rang. Geoff picked it up...
Caller: Yes, hello. My name is Steve. I am calling to you to let you know your computer is broken.
Geoff: That's amazing.
Caller: Yes. We have scanned your computer. It is full of viruses. I will help you remove the viruses.
Caller: Sir? Hello?
Geoff: What is this about again?
Geoff: I'm not sick.
Caller: Your computer sir. Your computer is full of viruses.
Geoff: That's impossible.
Caller: But, we have done a scan on your computer.
Geoff: I don't have a computer.
Caller: You don't have a computer?
Caller: But, everyone has a computer.
Geoff: I don't.
Caller : (silence)
Geoff: I have a tractor.
Caller: (stunned silence)
Geoff: My tractor is broken. Maybe you could help me fix it.
Caller: I. Um. I'm not sure I understand what you...
Geoff: It's the front tire. It just won't hold air.
Caller: I really don't think...
Geoff: I've tried everything but she leaks like a son of a bitch. I need my tractor. I farm you know. I can't farm without my tractor. I love my tractor. Listen, if you could fix my tractor you would really be helping me out a lot.
Caller: I can't do that.
Geoff: You mean, you can't fix my tractor?
Geoff: Well then, why are you calling me?
Caller: I. Uh. I don't know.
More proof that we are the reason the do not call list was created.
