Devil Finds Work For Idle Hands

| Working | April 24, 2014

(My coworker and I are up front chatting while we wait for customers.)

Me: “I’m telling you, no one listens to what we say on the phone.”

Coworker: “There’s no way…”

(The phone rings. I hold up one finger and put on my best professional voice.)

Me: “Thank you for calling Beelzebub Video at [location]. You’re speaking with [My Name]. How may I help you?”

Caller: “Yes, hi. I was calling to see if you had [Movie] available?”

(I check the system, grab the video, and put it on hold. The whole time, my coworker is watching me with huge, unbelieving eyes.)

Me: *finishing up with caller* “Thank you, and have a dark and sinister day.” *to coworker* “Never so much as paused.”

Coworker: “You win.”
