All the dead talk reminds me of a strange conversation I had at a place I used to work...
We kept getting collections calls for this one woman and no matter how many times we told them she no longer worked there, they kept on calling. Daily, multiply times a day, multiply times a shift. The girls at the front counter was fed up answering these calls, so I told her to transfer them to me.
CC: Hello, may I speak to Maria Gomez (not real name)
me: Sir, your company has been informed multiple times that Maria does not work, we do not have current cantact information and stop calling us. This is a place of business, it is extremely disruptive to harass the customer service clerks all day and all night.
CC: This is an attempt to collect a debt and it is your duty to tell me where she is.
me: Oh, if that's all you wanted to know. She's in Mexico.
CC: You expect me to believe she's in Mexico?
me: Yes sir, she was deported. I'm not sure of the rules, but you could try contacting INS to verify that she has in fact been deported.
(At this point I would like to add, she really was deported. It is not any kind of euphemism. She was here illegally and was deported.)
CC: You expect me to believe she's been deported? That only happens in movies.
me: Sir, may I speak to your supervisor.
on hold a crazy amount of time...
Had a very similar conversation with supervisor.
Got a call a few days later...same conversation...ending with "Oh sorry to bother you, I do see the notation that she was deported and to stop contacting you".
