 I took Sabot to the vet for her annual. She was a very good girl, gained some weight but not a worrisome amount, and is in general good health. While I was waiting, there was the most piteous sobbing that turned out to belong to a very large, very sad dog who had just come out of surgery. Her owner came to pick her up (she was wearing the most adorable cone of shame that said "hug me," "love me" and so on) and as we were standing in line to pay our bills—mine reasonable, hers ridiculously high—she told everyone at the vet's a story.

Earlier in the day, she'd received a phone call from an unlisted number. There was a pause when she picked up, and she said it sounded like a call centre in India. The man claimed that he was calling from Windows, and there was something wrong with her computer—could she turn it on for him?

"Do you think I'm an idiot?" she asked.

Another pause.

"Yes," he said. "I think you are an idiot, and a motherfucker, and an asshole." And then he hung up.

She was fucking thrilled and was so excited about it that she had to tell everyone because it was that delightful.

Wow. When they go off script, they really go off script.

Well, as a matter of fact, my refrigerator wasn't running. You've spared me quite a bit of spoilage. Thank you.

I get those periodically. I just tell them I don't have a computer.

Also, sad puppers!

I thought that story was going to turn out much more unfortunately.

That is the best story I've heard all day; possibly in several sets of days. Thank you and thank her. And that him, for that matter.

Also, good to know Sabot is well.

I love that she called him on the bull. I would probably just quietly hang up on the person :P

And yay, healthy kitty!

You say that, but I was really impressed with how you handled the thing with the car. I wouldn't have been able to stand my ground like you did.
