Now, Wait Just A New York Minute

| USA | Extra Stupid

(I work in a call center taking customer care calls for cell phones.)

Me: “Welcome to [store]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, I am going to Ireland and I want to know the per minute rate.”

Me: “Yes, thats no problem. The per minute rate to Ireland is $0.99 per minute.”

Customer: “Is that an Irish minute or an American minute?”

Me: *confused* “Miss, a minute is a minute no matter where you are.”

Customer: “No, it’s not! You’re just trying to get my bill higher than it should be! I will report you to the BBB!”
