    A Bozo By Any Other Name, Part 3

    , | Pennsylvania, USA |

    (As part of my job, I have to call potential leads and obtain information so that we can give them a quote. I am on the phone with a customer and have just finished obtaining all of the information I need.)

    Me: “That’s all the information I need. One of the agents will contact you within a few days and will send a copy of the quote to your email address.”

    Customer: “What is your name?”

    Me: “My name is Carolyn.”

    Customer: “No. Your name is Carol-INE. Do you mind if I call you Caroline?”

    Me: “Sure?”

    Customer: “Thanks, Carol-INE! Have a good day!”

    Me: *confused* “Your house is burning?”

    Customer: “My house is burning! What should I do?”

    Pre(Car)ious Insurance, Part 5

    | Doylestown, PA, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling [insurance company], how can I help you?”

    Customer: “Do I still have insurance? Or am I cancelled?”

    Me: “It looks like the policy cancelled last month due to non-payment.”

    Customer: “Oh, no. Well, can I make a payment now?”

    (I take payment for the customer.)

    Customer: “Okay. I am going to hand you over to this police officer to verify that I now have insurance.”

    (I speak with the officer and assure her the customer has made the payment and is now insured. The customer gets back on the phone.)

    Customer: “So, I see all of this stuff on ‘safe driving discounts’ on TV. Do I qualify for that?”
