(I’m sitting at the front desk, reading a very important email from corporate. This… gentleman comes in and stands by the desk for a bare second before BANGING on the desk to get my attention. Cue immediate and all-consuming, barely-contained anger.)

Me: *eye-twitch* “Yes, can I help you?”

Customer: “I’d like to talk to someone who runs the place about possibly moving my wife in here.”

Me: *dripping with immensely fake sweetness* “Oh I’m SORRY, sir, but everyone’s in a meeting right now.”

Customer: “Oh. Is [Coworker] here?”

Me: “Yes… she’s in the meeting.”

Customer: “Okay, how about [Other Coworker]?”

Me: “She’s here… in the meeting.”

Customer: “What about [Boss]?”

Me: “In the meeting…”

Customer: *finally catching on* “Alright then. I’ll call again later.”

Me: “Sounds great. Bye!”

(I spent the next 10 minutes with my eye twitching, trying to calm down. I will never understand why I am such a moron-magnet.)
