(I am working the front desk over lunch, I am a very white bread kind of guy and the other med tech on desk is a a very intelligent student, born in the middle east, has a cultually appropriate name, speaks English better that most of our patients. He answers the phone.)
Him:”Hello, (our clinic) this is (his cultural name) what can I do to help you? Oh, OK, just one moment. This guy says he wants to speak to someone else besides me.”
Understanding the situation I pick up the line;
Me, doing very thick imitation of Apu from The Simpsons: “Hello, my name is Subankhar, how may I be of service please?”
Man on line:”Uh, let me speak to the other guy.”
Suddenly he didnt have any problem talking to our student.
