the company for which I work delivers products.
One of our drivers gets a collection call once or twice a week.
He has a very distinct and hard to pronounce Nordic name, so the collections agents always mispronounce it, and, he is never here to take a call anyway because he is a truck driver.

This morning he received another call. The woman tried to make it sound as if it were a personal call (asking for a cell number etc..)
I really need to speak with him about this matter and I haven't had a chance to...

so I asked Does this have anything to do with that weekend in Toronto a few years ago and now there is a small blonde kid and a paternity test to be taken?

there was dead silence on the line....

was it wrong of me to do that?

peace & fun with collection agents
