Idiots Nationwide

| Working | February 7, 2015

(My manager’s daughter is on vacation in Mexico and has recently called from the resort’s phone to tell her mom that her call phone isn’t working. The manager has called the phone company to figure out what the problem is. I’ve only caught the last bit of the conversation and can only hear one side.)

Manager: “I just don’t understand why her phone isn’t working.”

Manager: “But I have nationwide coverage. Why isn’t it working?”

Manager: “Ugh, fine.” *hangs up*

Me: “What happened?”

Manager: “They said they’d make her phone work, but it’s going to cost [amount] per minute. I have nationwide coverage. I don’t know why it’s going to cost so much!”

Me: “Nationwide means in the USA. You know that, right?”

Manager: “What do you mean by that?”

Me: “[Coworker] is in Mexico. That’s not part of the nation, meaning—”

Manager: “—it’s supposed to be NATIONWIDE! Her phone should work!”

(She stormed off leaving me dumbfounded and speechless.)
