Malcolm McLaren and Peter Saville on subsequent calls, that was quite exciting.

not any more but i used to work in lloyds tsb selling people things they didn't need and doing some very dubious and possibly illegal telephone banking crap.

It was awful but it paid for me to go out and jump about in dark rooms while i was at uni.

A girl i worked with answered a call from a lady called How Lynn Jobi, that was the highlight of my 4 years

I work for BT in the business area. The highlight for me so far is the free broadband and satellite. That, and the fact I actually work in very nice surroundings [which really does make a change, if you've worked in call centres before]

In my call centre days I took a call from a Mr. Onions, I kept having to put him on hold as I was laughing so much.

Small pleasures to get you through the hell that is a call centre

I am a backstreet abortionist.

I don't really like my work.

It means I can put 'BA' after my name though. I think.

one of the hobbits from lord of the rings bought a mars bar from my old work, and he complained it was too expensive.

Well, at my job, John Peel used to phone me and wake me up occasionally on Saturday mornings.

I win.
