It Must Be Nice To Be Able To Afford Six Bathrooms And Not Know

, , , | Right | July 9, 2020

I work at a small answering service. We answer the phones for local home inspectors and schedule home inspections.

Me: “Hello, [Company], this is [My Name].”

Client: “Hi, I need to schedule a home inspection, please. We’re kind of pressed for time.”

Me: “Okay, our next opening is on Friday morning; will that be soon enough?”

Client: “I think so.”

Me: “All right, well, let me get some information so I can give you a quote. What is the property address to be inspected?”

Client: “Umm… I don’t know… Hold on a minute.”

It takes him so long that I have time to write, “Who calls to schedule a home inspection without knowing the address?!” and show my coworkers.

Client: “Oh, here, it’s [address].”

Me: “Okay, and can you tell me how many bedrooms and bathrooms are in the home?”

Client: “Um, it says here, um… six bedrooms and five baths.”

Me: *Thinking* “He’s buying the house and he doesn’t know.”
