What are some things you could say into a phone that could be taken wrong (WTF or LOL reaction) by strangers who overhear?

Just be creative. An example might be "We're probably going to have to light the thing on fire"

We have laptops at work that are on stands with wheels, so we can take them with us around the ward. They are officially called "Computers on Wheels" and inevitably referred to as "cows". This can be unfortunate on a hospital ward:

"Just a second, I need to have a quick look at the cow at the end of the ward."
"I'm having trouble getting the old cow started up."
"Hang on, the cow just died on me..."
"I just turned the cow on but it needs a bit of a scrub before I start pressing any buttons."

If the cow got a virus, that could get interesting too.

'What are you wearing?'

I always ask my girlfriends when we're getting ready to go somewhere fancy.

"Ok, let's blow that joint." "Sorry can't talk now the C4 has finally arrived."
Hell I say odd things on the phone just waiting for the men in black suits and dark glasses to show up.

At my last job, we had three different reasons for an order to be placed on hold. They were categorized as A, B, and C type holds. We had to rename the hold types because the following conversation happened more than once:

Customer: Why is my order being held?
CS Rep: Let's see.... Oh! Because you are an A-hold!

I am a computer programmer. In my day job, I work for an online retailer. The warehouse guys use electronic barcode scanners to check items in and out. Because of their design, the scanners are widely referred to as "guns". Some products are bundles of multiple items which can be bought separately and appear as separate items on the stocklist (eg, a cordless electric drill with a battery pack). These are known in the trade as a "Bill of Materials", or BOM.

I've often thought that it would be easy to be misunderstood if I was ever called out of hours by the IT director asking me to fix an issue with the guns or BOMs.
