Hold horror stories: Chief, we've got a f*cking idiot on line 1. Oh, you heard all that


More mute button mayhem.

Many years ago, an insurance call centre selling products for the over fifties market.

Cue a nice elderly gentleman of eighty five summers seeking a car insurance quote for himself and his nineteen year old female "co-driver".

Deano (it's always someone called Deano) is taking the call. He is amused by the massive age difference. Finger skims the mute button on his phone. Utters the immortal words "Bit of a paedophile, are we sir?"

Mute button was not engaged as assumed.

Cue explosion from the other end of the call.. (And trouser explosions two milliseconds later!)
