Oh, my favorite thing to do nowadays is PLAY DUMB...
And see how long I can keep them on the line.

I will tell them: "Oh, Dear... Really... This is quite terrible, I am so sorry, what do you need?"
Them: Can you go to your computer?
Me: Yes, Should I turn it on?
Them: Of Course!
Me: Okay, there it goes. give it a couple of minutes, I will make a coffee (I mute myself, put them on speaker)
...
They will usually ask if I am still there, I will apologize for the slow computer.

I can usually get 5 minutes out of them.

Then I tell them, okay, it says:
Welcome to MS-DOS 5.0
C:>

And they start asking about windows. LMAO. Playing dumb, to keep them on the line.

Eventually they yell at me, and call me a liar. But after 3 times of doing this to them,
I no longer get these calls!!! I guess I made it on their "Do Not Bother List!"

It's actually FUN...
