    | Suffolk, UK |

    Me: “Good morning, thank you for calling ***** Pet Insurance. My name is Barry, how can I help?”

    Customer: “I’m not happy!”

    Me: “And why is that?”

    Customer: “I don’t know the sort code for my bank account!”

    Me: “Okay…have you tried calling your bank?”

    Customer: “If I did that I’d end up talking to somebody in India! Can’t you just tell me?”

    Me: “Well, I sell pet insurance, so unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of information. I only have information on how much it will cost to insure a cat or a dog. I guess you could find it if you went to your bank’s website.”

    Customer: “Oh great! Could you do that for me?”

    Me: *sigh*
