    (A client is calling to complain about a debt on his insurance policy.)

    Customer: “…I know it’s not your fault. You’ve been understanding, but I have to say: the girl I spoke to this morning was awful! She said you were going to take money out of my bank account without my permission.”

    (I begin scanning through all the notes since the inception of the policy.)

    Me: “I’m not sure why anyone would advise you that, sir, because we don’t even have any facility to do that.”

    Customer: “I didn’t know that, did I? She was rude, and abrasive, and she threatened me. I want her fired—”

    (At this point, I come across the only note from today.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, I’m going to have to interrupt you there. It was actually ME you spoke to this morning, and I said nothing at all about taking money from your account. I’ve got a written record of our conversation here, but if you’re insisting on taking the matter further, I can find a recording of the call to prove it to you, too.”

    Customer: “Oh.” *hangs up*
