hehe, I blame the file sharing sites, this happens to me once every 2 weeks or so.
Ripped from Something Awful
ok, about 30 seconds ago I got off the phone with a mexican I had to call to inform him that because he had not given his social security number we would not be able to provide his mobile phone service he had ordered. this is how it went (translated to english):
Me - "we were unable to process your order due to your social security number or drivers license number not having been entered, if I can get one of these from you I'll be able to provide you with the service you ordered"
Mexican - "oh well... the thing is that I don't have either of those" (this is the case with most of these calls)
Me - "that's understandable sir, you'll just need to call qwest directly and make special arrangements with them for your situation"
Mexican - "well, can I give you my fake social security number?"
Me - "uh, no."
Mexican - "ok I guess I'll have to call then"
I was dumbfounded that someone would so readily admit their illegality, maybe it was because I speak fluent spanish and he felt comfortable with me, but damn no one should get that confortable.
