    Power Trips Of Ten

    | New Port Richey, FL, USA | Crazy Requests, Language & Words

    (I work for a company that sends techs out to repair TVs and computers in customers’ homes. We have an automated call that goes out to confirm customers’ contact information and addresses. One day, a customer calls in.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling [business]. How can I help you?”

    Caller: “Yeah, I got that auto-call and it got my address wrong.”

    Me: “Okay, just a second…”

    (I pull up the customer’s information.)

    Me: “Okay, I see that we have the address listed as 1-3-6 West—”

    Caller: “NO! It’s ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY SIX! It’s NOT ONE-THREE-SIX!”

    Me: *confused*

    Caller: “You fix that, okay?”

    Me: “Sure…sir. I’ll…update that right now for you.”

    Caller: “Thanks…bye!” *click*
