tring tring...

The calls that a person gets in India at times irritates and at times amuses. I got these 2 calls.One was from the ICICI bank and another was from HUTCH. ...... A guy calls me from ICICI bank and says that he wants to talk about the credit limit of the ICICI credit card. Having refused a lot of similiar calls, i thought i will talk to this guy and find out what he had to offer. he:Sir, i need to talk about the credit limit of ICICI credit card. Me: fine, go ahead he:Sir you have exceeded your credit limit and payment is due now. Me: what? i dont own a ICICI credit card...! and i am senthil natarajan, just in case if you got the wrong person. he: but sir you have exceeded the allowed limit of your card. Me: I told you i dont own a ICICI credit card, and for your info i dont even have ICICI debit card....!( actually i have a ICICI debit card) he: but i am pretty sure that you have crossed the credit limit( now this guy was adamant) Me: hey, when i dont have a credit card then how will I excced its limit? can you give me the card number that you are talking about? he: Sir, as part of our privace policy we donot disclose the card numbers over the phone. Me: Now we need to put an end to this discussion, just prove me that i own a card. he: Sir can you please tell me the last two transactions that you did with your credit card??? Me: Transactions thru' credit card........! damn! i hung up . Just to make sure that i indeed got a call from ICICI i returned the call to the same number after 15 mins. It was ICICI .....! god save ICICI bank from these guys. .... and this call i got last month from HUTCH. I used to get calls from BPL mobile while i was using it, and they usually called to ask if i was intrested to change to Post-paid connection. I was attending a training session when i got this call. lady: sir we are calling from Hutch.... me: i am sorry can you call me after sometime i am busy at the moment and i hung up after say 20-30 secs i got a call again but with a different number lady: sir i am calling from HUTCH..... me:sorry i said i am busy now ....and i abruptly hung up irritated now then there was no call for 2-3 mins and again a number flashed, i was pissed off but din want to hang up, as i din know the number and moreover i was waiting a call from my trainee incharge in HCL.So i answered the phone lady: sir sir sir your due date to pay your bill is over and tomm. we will disconnect your line. me:oops!and hung up gosh! all the while she was trying to tell me that....and i was thinking she was trying to promote some crapy new scheme.
