A Welsh Of Knowledge

| Wales, UK |

(I work in a call center that only calls the local area.)

Me: “Hello, sir, I’m just calling about–”

Customer: “What country are you calling from?”

Me: “Me? Wales, sir.”

Customer: “Don’t give me that. All of you people are based in India or something.”

Me: “I assure you, we’re not, sir. I’m not Indian; I’m based in Wales.”

Customer: “Sure you are! You companies are all the same.” *in Welsh* “I bet we don’t even speak the same language.”

Me: *in Welsh* “Sir, I’m not Indian. I’m in an office probably no more than ten minutes from you right now.”

Customer: “You know, for an Indian, you have excellent pronunciation.”
