A Different Kind Of Storm Of Protest

, , , | Right | November 10, 2020

I’m working at the call center of a large pension fund. It’s around three pm and there’s a severe storm predicted to hit us in the early evening. I’m about five minutes into a complicated call when orders come down from upper management that everyone is to go home right now.

Me: “I’m sorry to do this to you, sir, but may I have your number so I can call you back tomorrow? We’ve been told to go home as it seems the storm is going to get here a lot sooner than initially predicted.”

Client: *Practically screaming* “What the h*** are you still talking to me for? Get yourself home NOW!” *Click* 

That was definitely not the reaction I expected.
