    No Dollars, No Sense

    | Juarez, Mexico |

    Me: “Thank you for calling **** Bank, may I have your full name please?”

    Customer: “I’m not giving you my full name. I want to speak to a supervisor.”

    Me: “I’m sure I can help you solve your problem, ma’am, just give me your full name so I can look up your information.”

    Customer: “All right, FINE! My name is ****.”

    Me: “Thank you, Ms. ****. What seems to be the problem?”

    Customer: “I was at the store trying to buy baby formula, but I didn’t have any money left on my account. Why is that?”

    Me: “Well, it appears you have made several purchases throughout the day, and you eventually ran out of money.”

    Customer: *yelling* “I KNOW THAT I BOUGHT STUFF EARLIER, BUT WHY DON’T I HAVE ANY MONEY LEFT?!”

    Me: “Well, ma’am, you could go ahead and return what you bought to get your money back and–”

    Customer: *interrupting, baby crying in the background* “HOLD ON, SIR!”

    Background Voice: “Hi, welcome to ****, how can I help you today?”

    (At this point, the customer starts placing a food order while I wait on the line for her to get back to me, and the baby keeps crying.)

    Customer: “Here baby, don’t cry…have some fries.”

    Me: “Ms. ****, are you still there?”

    Customer: “Yes I’m here – have you put my money back in my account
    yet?”

    Me: “I’m afraid I can’t do that. You’ve already spent the money, so your best bet is to go and return some of the things you bought earlier.”

    Customer: “I THOUGHT YOU WERE GONNA DO THAT FOR ME!”

    Me: “I can’t do that; you have to do it personally.”

    Customer: “CAN’T YOU JUST DO IT ON YOUR COMPUTER?!”

    Me: “No ma’am, it’s not physically possible for me to walk into a store with your stuff through my computer.”

    Customer: *yelling louder* “WELL, IF YOU CAN’T USE ALL YOUR TECHNOLOGY TO DO A SIMPLE THING LIKE THAT, I’M GONNA HAVE TO SWITCH BANKS! THANKS FOR NOTHING!” *hangs up*
