On January 8th of this week my parents received a phone call which they dodged because the call was coming through at 11:00 p.m. at night. The next day they retrieved the voicemail message which was from Microsoft technical support calling *me* back to see if my problem has been resolved. I told my folks that the caller was obviously phishing for information for some kind of identity theft and that neither they or I should return a call to the toll free number. I hadn't lived with my parents for many years and it didn't make sense for Microsoft to have called me at their home number. But then after I calmed down, I reversed phone searched the toll free number which appeared to be a legitimate Microsoft Number. Then I recalled that I had called Microsoft not once, but twice (possibly as many as 3 different times). I remember in the past year or so when I called Microsoft and the problem was not resolved (BSOD after Microsoft patch) that Microsoft did call me back the next day to see if i made any progress in my little computer crises (which I though was super cool of them... I was really impressed)... but wait a second .... or wait 315,569,260 seconds .... Microsoft hadn't done this (call me back that is) the first time I called ... and I called many years ago.... but that must have been when I was living at home with my parents..... which is why they called me at my parents phone number. Look at the top of your keyboard.... On January 7, 1998 a Tech Support person typed into their database to call me back the next day... but instead of typing 1/8/98 they typed 1/8/08 Instead of typing the "9" right next to it they typed "0" Microsoft had called me back 10 years later!
