Neverending Query

| Beaufort, SC, USA | Uncategorized

(The phone rings at 11pm, although our restaurant has been closed since 10pm.)

Me: “Thank you for choosing ***, how can I help you?”

Customer: “Yeah, I’d like to place an order for delivery.”

Me: “Sorry ma’am, we’re closed.”

Customer: “I don’t understand, why are you answering the phone?”

Me: “I have to. Even though we’re closed, we still might get important phone calls.”

Customer: “I still don’t understand, why are you closed?”

Me: “We have regular business hours to follow, and on weekdays we’re only open till 10pm.”

Customer: “But I don’t understand… why are you answering the phone if you’re closed, then?”

Me: *face desk*

(It went in circles like that for about ten minutes. I finally got tired of her ‘why’ questions and it had really had been a horrible night… so, I hung up the phone.)

Me, to other employees: “You wouldn’t believe this lady…”

*phone rings*

Me: “Thank you for choosing ***, how can I help you?”

Customer: “So why are you still answering the phone if you’re closed?”

Me: *multiple face desks*
