I was round at my mum's the other day when she got a call from "Microsoft". She was rather good:

"Hello Kevin, how are you? It's a shame, you sound like such a nice boy, why don't you just do something honest for living? Get yourself a proper job and one day you might not have to lie about working for Microsoft - that would be nice, wouldn't it? You might even be able to sleep at night." <Long pause as "Kevin" tries to explain that he really does work for Microsoft> "Ah well, whatever you say, dear. If you want to talk about computers, you're in luck, my son's here - he writes Windows programs, I'll just pass the 'phone over to him ... Kevin? Kevin? Are you still there? Oh! He's gone!"
98.4% of statistics are made up on the spot.
