Me: *answering a phone* “How can I direct your call?”

Customer: “Get me [Department].”

Me: “All of [Department] is tied up on the phones right now; can I have them call you back?”

Customer: “I need [Department].”

Me: “As I said, they’re all on other lines.”

Customer: “…”

Me: “Would you like to leave your name and number?”

Customer: “No one’s free?”

Me: “No, I’m afraid not.”

Customer: “How many people you got there?”

Me: “There are three people, and they are all on other lines.”

Customer: “Ain’t none of them can come to the phone?”

Me: “No, sir.”

Customer: “Oh.” *long pause* “Have them call me.”

Me: “Sure, what was your name—”

(The customer hung up.)
