    And yet another - hopefully they finish at 7!!

    Me: Hello
    Debitas: Can I speak to Mr X
    Me: Yes - just a second
    Me: Hello - and merry christmas!!
    Debitas: Is that Mr X?
    Me: Yes - I can't talk too long, the Turkey is coming out the oven
    Debitas: I need to ask you some security questions
    Me: What on Christmas day?
    Debitas: Sorry?
    Me: Why are you working on Christmas day?
    Debitas: It's February
    Me: Not here it's not, oh, are you calling from the future?
    Debitas: Can you tell me your date of birth?
    Me: I hate getting these calls from the future - what date is where you are?
    Debitas: What?
    Me: What date is it?
    Debitas: It's the 16th of February
    Me: Oh, it's Christmas day here - Merry Christmas!!
    Debitas: I need to confirm your details
    Me: Oh right, sorry, the brandy is making me merry *hic*
    Debitas: Can I take your post code?
    Me: Hang on - what is this in connection with?
    Debitas: Your capital one account
    Me: Are you a debt collector?
    Debitas: We are
    Me: I'm not in debt - oh, this must mean I get in debt in the future, that's a bummer
    Debitas: I need to confirm your details
    Me: You see, I bought a delorean and it took me back in time when I hit 88mph
    Debitas: Wha....
    Me: (interrupting) I'm celebrating Christmas just now, it'll be new year soon but I don't feel like celebrating knowing that I'm gonna be in debt
    Debitas: What?
    Me: Sorry, you probably don't understand this, it's the 25th of December 2007 where I am - you see I got transported back in time by my delorean
    Debitas: You are at risk of legal action
    Me: Oh, I'm definitely not gonna celebrate new years now, in fact, I don't even feel like having my dinner now
    Debitas: I....
    Me: (interrupting) Those chipolatas look so good too - with bacon wrapped round them
    Debitas: Do you know how serious this is?
    Me: Oh, I know! I'm in the past so I can stop myself getting into debt and then you'll never call me
    Debitas: I...
    Me: (interrupting) But then if I do that, you should never have called me in the first place - oh this is so confusing
    Debitas: I....
    Me: (interurrupting) I know what, I'll buy an Almanac and start betting like Biff does
    Debitas: These calls will continue Mr X until you accept your responsibilities
    Me: I wonder if O2 charge you extra for calling me in the past
    Debitas: (hangs up)
    Treat others as you would like to be treated
