Calling Is Not Their Calling

| Working | May 12, 2016

(My phone rings. It’s not a number I recognize.)

Me: “Hello?”

Person: “Thank you for holding. Can I get your account number?”

Me: “What…?”

Person: “May I get your account number?”

Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t know what’s going on. You called me.”

Person: “Ma’am, what is the purpose of your call?”

Me: “No, seriously, you called me. What business is this?”

Person: “Ma’am… you’re saying WE called YOU?”

Me: “Yes. I’m not trying to fool you or anything, but my phone rang, I answered, and you asked for my account number. I have no idea what’s going on right now.”

(There’s a confused silence.)

Person: “Okay, thank you for calling!” *click*
