    Just Calling It As I See It

    | Columbus, OH, USA | Uncategorized

    (I am a telephone operator for a very large international company. Callers need to know the first and last name of the person they need to be transferred to.)

    Caller: “Hi, can I be transferred to Steve?”

    Me: “Sure, what’s Steve’s last name?”

    Caller: “Oh, I don’t know his last name. I just know his name is Steve.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but this is the global directory and I would have no way of looking him up without his last name.”

    Caller: “Oh, I see. Well, I’ll just call him and get his last name, then.”

    Me: “Wait…if you have his direct number, why were you calling me in the first place?”

    Caller: *hangs up*
