That's awful, VA, but I can see the humor in it.

My father-in-law died the year before Clinton ran for re-election. As a supporter of the Republican Party, he must have donated to them at some point, because we kept receiving funding appeals with a message on the outside of the envelope. Repeatedly I wrote "Deceased. Return to sender" and stuck the envelopes back in the mailbox, to no avail. The next and last appeal with "Will you help us beat Bill Clinton in November?" printed on it got "NO! I'M DEAD!!"

The husband of a former coworker of mine committed suicide (years ago), leaving her a widow at age 25 or so. She had to spend some time cleaning up his financial stuff.

One phone call got very frustrating when the operator didn't seem to understand that he was dead and couldn't come to the phone. This story is horrible and funny at the same time. Best I can remember it:

Op: Ma'am, I'll need to speak with your husband to get authorization for you to deal with his account. Her: I told you. He died last fall. Op: Ma'am, our protocols are very strict and our privacy policy is very clear. Without authorization from your husband I am unable to resolve anything. Her: How is that going to happen? He's DEAD. Op: Well unless he can speak on the phone he can get a power of attorney form signed online and send it to our office. Her: Are you not hearing me? He's dead. Op: Is he there with you right now? Her: No. I can go dig him up though. I don't think he'll be able to hear you. He doesn't have a head. Do you hear me? He blew his fucking head off. Do you still need to speak with him? Op: .............

The spelling of my name leads a lot of people to mispronounce it, so whenever we answer a call where they are butchering it, 9 times out of 10 it's a marketing call. CLICK!

I feel horribly guilty...but I usually hang up on them. I used to try to be polite, but all they do is argue with you!!

I never answer my home phone- they can leave a message, or not. Anyone I need to talk to has my cell phone number.

yes this is how we are too.

If it wasn't for fucking Morons, we'd have nothing to do in these fora!

"Does she offer any purgative products?"

She sells sea shells and all sorts of other products. I'm sure she can hook you up. Do you have something stuck in your rectum? Or do you suffer from Mucoid plaque?

And yes, she is a MILF - Moron I'd Like to Fuck.
