    (I happened to be on call-quality monitoring when one of my coworkers got this call.)

    Coworker: “Thank you for calling **** Gifts, my name is ****. How can I help you?”

    Caller: *with a thick accent* “Do you have anyone there that speaks Spanish?”

    (I work at an incoming call center for a well known adult website. Most of our calls deal with technical problems or issues with logging-in to the sites. Most of them, anyway….)

    Caller: “Good afternoon, sir. I’m having some issues here.”

    Me: “That’s what we’re here for! What can I do to help?”

    Caller: “Well, I’m sitting here looking at all these beautiful women and, well, I just can’t seem to get an erection.”
