Giving A Voice To Your Career Choices

, , , | Right | December 8, 2019

(I’ve been told I have a sultry phone voice since I was seventeen. Working as a dispatcher for a cable company, I call multiple customers during the day to let them know a technician is coming to their home, or to verify that service is working again.)

Me: “Ma’am, this is [My Name] with [Company], calling to let you know the tech is ready to come out to your home.”

Customer: “Oh, no, it’s working fine now; he doesn’t need to come out.”

(As I’m closing out her trouble ticket and entering the information on her account, we make small talk. At the end of the call.)

Customer: “Can I tell you something without offending you?”

Me: “Well, there’s only one way to find out!”

Customer: “Your voice is completely wasted on this job.”

Me: *laughing* “I don’t know whether to thank you or not.”

Customer: “You should be working for one of those 900 numbers. Your voice is fantastic!”

(It should be noted that I’ve been a phone sex operator for three years now. Thanks for the career advice, ma’am!)
