how humor doesn't translate well

i have this costa rican guy coming to my house tomorrow night to do some voiceover work on a film i shot last year. his grasp of english is shaky - very shaky.

anyway, he called my cell, and my message picks up - "hey, you've reached steve. i'm not home right now, so leave your name, credit card number and expiration date, and i'll be sure to charge something expensive as soon as possible."

he left me this message: "no. i will not leave my credit card number so you can charge something expensive."

maybe we should export some sarcasm to central america.

I'm curious, did he at least leave his name, telephone number and a brief message?
