    Pride Goeth Before A Deal

    | Edmonton, AB, Canada | Canada, Money, Top

    (I work at a call center in Canada dealing with American cell customers. This is a call from a customer in Seattle.)

    Me: “Hello, thanks for calling [Company Name]. How may I help you?”

    Caller: “Does your company outsource to India?”

    Me: “I don’t know for sure, but I know it does hire companies out of the USA.”

    Caller: “I’d like to cancel my service, then.”

    Me: “I can do that for you. May I ask why you’d like to cancel?”

    Caller: “I don’t support companies that don’t support America. If they’re hiring out of America, then I don’t want to support them.”

    Me: “Alright, I’ll process that cancellation for you.”

    Caller: “Am I calling to India?!”

    Me: “No. I’m actually in Canada.”

    Caller: “Oh, I love Canada! I do all my shopping there. Everything is so much cheaper!”
