A Coincidence Beyond Numbers

| UT, USA | Extra Stupid

Me: “Thank you for calling technical support, this is [my name]. May I get your company’s phone number or ticket number, please?”

Customer: “My company’s number is [number].”

(This number pulls up her company, but it’s an inactive account. I then look it up by the company’s name, and find the active account under a completely different phone number.)

Me: “Alright, ma’am, it actually looks as though we have the account under this phone number.” *gives her the new number*

Customer: “That’s the number I gave you!”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry about that; I thought you had given me [first phone number].”

Customer: “No, no! I gave you [second number], not that other one. You typed it in wrong!”

Me: “Oh, okay. So I just happened to mistype the phone number into a completely different number, which also happened to pull up your company, just by chance?”

Customer: “YES!”
