    Someone Needs To Treat Warhorse

    | St. Cloud, MN, USA | Language & Words, Pets & Animals

    (I work at a call center that does outbound fundraising. One of our clients is the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Department of Minnesota.)

    Me: “Hello, this is [my name], calling for the ‘Veterans of Foreign Wars, Department of Minnesota’. Thanks for taking my call!”

    Woman: “Wait, wait, did you say veterans?”

    Me: “Yes, I was calling because—”

    Woman: “I don’t need a veteran. I don’t even have any animals!”

    (I can give her the benefit of the doubt for simply mixing up the words ‘veterans’ and ‘veterinarians’. But I have to wonder what she would have thought a veterinarian of foreign wars would be!)
