He Is CEOut

, , , | Right | August 17, 2020

The company I work for, while based out of my state, has many locations all over the country and is fairly well known as such. The location I work at has no special connection to our corporate office; we’re just another location. The phone rings and my coworker answers.

Coworker: “[Store] in [Location], how can I help you?”

Caller: “Hi, is the owner in?”

Coworker: “I’m sorry?”

Caller: “You know, the owner! Are they in right now?”

Coworker: “The owner… of [Company]?”

Caller: “Yeah!”

Coworker: “Um… no. No, they’re not.”

Caller: “Oh, okay.” *Hangs up*

Not only do we have no way of knowing what the CEO of [Company] is doing at any given moment, but even if we did, we as lowly retail workers would have no way of putting the caller in contact with them.
