    Celebrity Begins At Home

    (I am taking calls for a charity.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling [charity]. Are you calling this evening to make a donation?”

    Caller: “Sure I will, but I want to talk to on of the famous people first.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but that isn’t possible. However, if I take your donation, I’m sure that they will be grateful.”

    Caller: “Well what row are you in? Can you wave to me?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but I’m not on TV. I’m in a call center that handles the excess calls from generous people like yourself.”

    Caller: “Well just get up and tap [celebrity] on the shoulder! I’m sure he wouldn’t mind taking my call!”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m afraid I’m not in the studio at the moment.”

    Caller: “Well, I’ll just call back I’m sure the next person will know some one famous! You should stop hogging all the famous people!”
