Roll Back 88

Funny who you run into these days . . .

So I work at a call center, okay? And right now we're doing something for a car company. So last night this pops up on my screen:

Hello, my name is Nina [last name]. I'm calling on behalf of [company]. May I please speak to Seth Wheeler? [I had to bite the insides of my cheeks to get the name out straight. Dub names, yes, but still.]

I then proceeded to talk to these people:

Thank you, sir. Mr. Wheeler? Yes, my name is Nina [last name] calling on behalf of [company] in regard to the Porsche you purchased last year. Are you the person who drives this car most frequently?

And I kid you not, guys, Mr. Seth Wheeler sounds so much like Abridged Kaiba it's not even funny. [Actually, it was very funny. As soon as I got off the phone with him I turned off my headset and started laughing so hard I cried.]

So have you guys ever run into any characters, amalgamations of characters, etc.? I know someone here posted about running into a very fussy Kaiba, and I heard a Marik Ishtar get paged in an airport. I think these are funny stories. We should collect them. So share . . . 'kay?
