(I work in a well known OFFICE supply store. It’s close to closing when the phone rings.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [store], how may I take care of your business?.”

Caller: “Hi, I was wondering if you had any snorkel gear on sale?”

(Note: We never carried any type of snorkel equipment as we are an office supply store.)

Me: “Uh, pardon?”

Caller: “Do you have any snorkels or diving equipment on sale?.”

Me: “Uh, no sir, [Store] has never carried any type diving equipment.”

Caller: “Well, I called before and a guy told me you did.”

(At this point I knew it had to be a prank call)

Me: “Well, I don’t know what associate would tell you that, but [store] is named [store] for a reason, and snorkels are not office supplies.”

Caller: *pause* “WELL THEY SHOULD!” *Click.*
