an old fashioned crank call

i’m working from home today, making and recieving a few phone calls. the phone rang, i said “hello” as you do and…

 a man (boy?) said, quite politely “may i ask what city you live in?”

i said “may i ask who’s calling?”

he got a bit flustered and said…”oh, yeah, i forgot to say that part…i’m doing a survey for argos” (quiet chuckle)

I said “i live in birmingham”

he (and his mates) busted out laughing and hung up….

duh? did i miss something or has the skill  and finesse of a good old crank call..let alone an obscene call been lost in this high tech culture~~
