  3. Haunted Tech Support: A customer calls tech support for a haunted device that only sends spooky emojis, plays eerie music, or keeps liking pictures of cats dressed as ghosts.

  6. Lost in Translation: A tourist asks for directions, but every passerby interprets the request in the most outlandish way, leading the tourist on a wild and zany adventure.
