(So my number is very close to Safeway Pharmacy. Becuase of that, I get a lot of wrong numbers for people wanting to get their prescriptions filled, check in on some info, etc. Unlike most people, I do answer the phone because I know that making sure you know about your medication is important (I have multiple family members who need to take meds and if they felt like they were being ignored by the pharmacy, they’d either be incredibly stressed or incredibly annoyed). I Normally when I tell people they have a wrong number, they either apologize and hang up or just hang up. This time, I have someone who is obviously foreign with an accent I can’t really identify)
Me: *Answering the phone* Hello?
Man: *Immediately starts to give me a list of medications that he needs and his information*
Me: *Kindly interrupting him* Sir, I’m sorry but you have the wrong number.
Man: This isn’t Safeway Pharmacy?
Me: No, sir. It isn’t
Man: Why not?
Me: … Because it’s not…
Man: Well transfer me to them!
Me: I can’t.
Man: Why?!
Me: Because this is my personal cell phone.
Man: Just transfer me! I just moved from overseas and I need my medication filled here! I’m almost out!
Me: Sir, if I could, I would, but I can’t.
Man: I want your manager!
Me: That’s not possible.
Man: Why not?!
Me: Because I don’t work.
Man: Now you’re making excuses! I’m going to complain about you! You’re being incredibly rude! Give me your manager or I’ll report you!
Me: Sir, I’m trying to be nice. This is my own personal cell phone. You have the wrong number.
Man: I do not! (He hangs up)
(Yes, I know, most people who just hang up after saying that they have the wrong number if they even pick up in the first place but I’m a nice person. I just wonder what the pharmacy got an earful of when he actually called the right number because I never got a call from him again)
