I just had a nice Indian gentleman phoning up to tell me there was an error on the computing network.

I told him, "go scam someone else, you cunt." and terminated.

I'm wondering if that was entirely appropriate, or ought I to have been far more abusive?

I tend to play along with them a bit before swearing at them, it makes it that much more enjoyable when they realize you're f&%king with them.

If I'd had more time, I might have done that. But it's a bit too valuable ATM and theirs is worthless.

Its kinda fun to string their dumb asses along for a while to waste the time they could be spending on someone else... but yeah, I normally go straight to the words my mother would slap me for saying to anyone...

I should probably add that it totally depends on my mood when they call, if I'm busy I swear immediately, and usually involve some insults and typically mention some type of farm animal and what they should do with it.

If I have nothing better to do I'll mess with them before swearing and including farm animals and anatomy.

I normally use terms that would make Brick Top blush, if I'm in more mellow mood and I don't need the phone for an hour or two, I'll say "Hang on I'll get my Mum."

Yep, I usually leave the phone on the couch for as long as I don't need it, I sometimes make strange noises down it every now and again.
