    | Portland, OR, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling **** refill center. May I verify the last four digits of your mobile phone number?”

    Customer: “Yes.”

    (I hear four loud beeps as the customer pressing the buttons on his phone.)

    Me: “Sir, can you please TELL me the last four digits of your mobile phone number?”

    Customer: Oh, sure…”

    (Four loud beeps again.)

    Me: “Sir, I need you to say to me the last four digits of your mobile number.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay…” *reads numbers*

    Me: “Thank you. And may I verify your zip code, please?”

    Customer: “Sure.”

    (Another five beeps come from the phone.)

    Me: *whimpers*

    Sometimes, You Just Can’t Win, Part 2

    | American Fork, UT, USA |

    Me: “Hi, this is Alyssa, how can I help you?”

    Caller: “Hi, yeah, someone from your company called me and they were being all friendly to me over the phone.”

    Me: “… Oh? Were they rude to you in anyway?”

    Caller: “No… it’s just… they were being all nice… and I don’t like it when people pretend to be my friend, like they know me!”

    Me: “All right, but I don’t understand what the problem is with that.”

    Caller: “…”

    Me: “You know what, I’ll just go ahead and take you off our calling list, okay? You have a great day.”

    And The Problem Solves Itself

    | Louisville, KY, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling. May I please verify your address and phone number?”

    (The caller rattles off an address, including the apartment number.)

    Caller: “… that’s why I’m calling. What’s this about a ‘dog’ in my address?”

    (I notice her address has the words “DASIN DOG”.)

    Me: ¬†”I’m sorry, ma’am. I have no explanation for that. I can certainly remove it.¬†Also, we don’t seem to have your apartment number. Would you mind repeating that for me?”

    Caller: “D!¬†D as in Dog!”

    Sure, Let Me Get On My Hamster Wheel

    | Boise, ID, USA |

    (This was during a HUGE power outage in New York. The entire city was out of power.)

    Me: “Thanks for calling, my name is Carrie. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “My TV is not working.”

    Me: “Okay, what’s it doing?”

    Customer: “It won’t turn on.”

    (I notice that the customer is in New York.)

    Me: “The power is out through your entire city.”

    Customer: “But my TV won’t turn on.”

    Me: “Right, your TV runs on electricity, and won’t work without it.”

    Customer: “I just want to watch TV! Why won’t it turn on?”

    Me: “Can you go to a light switch and see if that works?”

    Customer: “That’s not why I called! I want to watch TV.”

    Me: “Without power, you won’t be able to watch your TV.”

    Customer: “Then fix it!”
