I *love* these calls; but, my family hates them because... I ALWAYS play along for 20 minutes of more.

I can't do a Little Old Lady but I get a rise by insisting that "I use Firefox rather than Explorer because I've heard it's more secure." Of course, I hold them off learning about my installation until they want me to go to the Start, and I then ask, "Where is that on K/Ubuntu?" The phone typically goes down at that stage.
