Barking Up Your Own Tree

, , | Right | September 24, 2009

(Note: our coffee shop shares a building with a fast food place.)

Me: “Good afternoon. This is [Coffee Shop]. [My Name] speaking.”

Caller: “Hey, are you guys right beside [Fast Food Place]?”

Me: “Yeah, just come in the same door.”

Caller: “Actually, I want to order from them, but they aren’t answering their phone.”

Me: “I’m sorry. Their manager comes in here fairly often. I’ll let him know he’s missing calls.”

Caller: “Will you go over and place my order for me and have it delivered?”

Me: “Ahh, I can’t do that. I don’t work for them.”

Caller: “Please? It will just take a moment. I can’t leave work.”

Me: “Neither can I, sir.”
