    Full Of Sound And Fury

    | Costa Mesa, CA, USA |

    (We have a ridiculously long phone greeting, and sometimes we get into the habit of saying it in a way that it does become a little slurred together, but we’ve been getting it slowed down so customers can hear.)

    Me: *says essay of a phone greet*

    Man with loud booming voice, practically yelling: “FIRST OF ALL YOU NEED TO TALK SLOWER! I AM ON A CELLPHONE!”

    Me: “… sorry?”

    Man: “SECOND OF ALL, I NEED TO ORDER A LAMP!”

    Me: “Sure thing, what kind and how many?”

    Man: “HOLD ON, TALK TO MY DAUGHTER. SHE KNOWS EVERYTHING I WANT!”

    (I hear him yell across in the same booming voice to get his daughter to order the lamp for him. They bicker for a minute before I hear her and get the order placed.)
