The dangers of outsourcing

[If anyone knows who wrote the following I'd love to give proper attribution.  It is posted on literally dozens of blogs and message boards, but pretty much all of them simply give the source as "I got this in an email"]

I was feeling a bit depressed the other day, so I called the suicide hotline.

I didn't realize they had gone offshore to save a few bucks and I was transferred to their "call center" in Pakistan.

I explained that I was feeling suicidal.

They became very excited at this news and wanted to know if I could drive a truck or fly an airplane.

[Again, I didn't write this, I just decided to share.  Don't thank me... I'm a giver]

There's a yet "funnier" version out there:

Now the nights are drawing in, I was feeling depressed the other day, so I called the Samaritans.

I was put through to a 'call centre' in Pakistan.

I explained that I was feeling suicidal.

They got very excited at this news and wanted to know if I could drive a truck or fly an aeroplane....

(I admit, that's a pun no one will get... :) )

*snerk* Good one. But I don't get the Samaritan pun?
