Now We Know Why He Needed A Vacation

, , , , | Right | May 3, 2019

(I work for an industrial supply company as a cashier and receptionist. One of my main responsibilities is to answer incoming calls and redirect them to the appropriate department.)

Me: “Hi. Thank you for calling [Company]. How may I direct your call?”

Caller: “Hi. I need to speak with [Sales Guy who is on vacation].”

Me: “I’m sorry, [Sales Guy] is actually not here today.”

Caller: “Is he going to be in tomorrow?”

Me: “I’m not entirely sure; he’s actually been on vacation so I’m not sure what day he comes back.”

Caller: *in a somewhat annoyed voice* “He’s on vacation?! But why?!”

Me: “Well, I’d assume to spend time with his family.”

(He seemed pretty content with that answer, but I’m not entirely sure what he was expecting.)
