Me: “Thank you for calling [pizza place]. How can I help you?”
Customer: “Yeah. I got a couple of questions for you.”
Me: “Okay, what are they?”
Customer: “Is your pizza, like, really fresh?”
Me: “Well, sir, it’s fresh right out of the oven.”
Customer: “Okay. Is it better than [competitor’s] pizza place?
Me: “Well, I don’t know, sir. I never order from them.”
Customer: “Oh, okay. I think they undercook their food.”
Me: “Well, I wouldn’t really know, sir. I don’t like their food at all.
Customer: “Oh, okay.”
(There is a long silence.)
Customer: “So, how was your day?”
Customer: “Okay. You working hard?”
(There is another long pause.)
Me: “Sir, is there anything I can help you with? Maybe some food?”
Customer: “Oh, no. I just called to ask those questions.”
