Has The Power To Fire Them

, , , , | Right | June 9, 2017

(Sometime the night before, an opossum got into the power box in our center and was electrocuted, causing power to go our building and others. We usually open at eight am. Our bosses texted the employees not to come in until nine am. When I came in at nine am there is an email from a customer saying he tried to call at eight am. I call him back immediately:)

Me: “Hello, I’m sorry you couldn’t get through this morning. We had a power outage.”

Customer: “Not answering the phone was unprofessional. You told me you would be there at eight am. I called; you didn’t answer.”

Me: “Yes, I understand. An opossum got into the power box, was electrocuted, and knocked out all the power.”

Customer: “Well, that was unprofessional of him!”

(Realizing the customer is not listening at all.)

Me: “You are completely correct. I assure the individual responsible was fired.”

(Or, should I say… fried)
