    Telepathy Is Fun

    | Magna, UT, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling ***, my name is ***. What can I help you with today?

    Customer: “I’ll tell you how you can help, fix my d*** computer!”

    Me: “So what is the problem with the computer today?”

    Customer: “It’s broken. Fix it.”

    Me: “Okay, but how is it broken?”

    Customer: “I don’t know, just fix it.”

    Me: “Is it not turning on, or is it not booting up?”

    Customer: “I don’t know about computers, just fix the problem already!”

    (This proceeds for almost 15 minutes back and forth. Finally, I decide to have some fun. I ask the customer to hold on for a second. I start shuffling some papers and opening and closing my desk drawer quite loudly.)

    Customer: “What was all that noise?”

    Me: “I think I found something we can use to fix this issue.”

    Customer: “Good, so get started on it.”

    Me: “Okay… now, I’m holding in front of me a crystal ball… I’m picturing the issue with the computer…¬†the computer is broken, and I’ve found a solution…”

    Customer: “I want to speak to your manager, that is very rude!”

    Me: “Sure thing, but wait… I see something else…¬†I see this call ending, now!” *click*

    (Thank goodness it was 1 AM and nobody listened in on that call, or I’d have been fired.)
