Open Is Open To Interpretation

| Right | November 1, 2014

(It’s Easter Sunday, and we are open until six pm. All morning we have had people calling to make sure we are open. It’s mildly annoying, but I understand why they are calling, so I decide to have a bit of fun with it.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [Company]. How may I help you?”

Customer: “Just calling to see if you’re open.”

Me: “No, sir, I am a pre-recorded message.”

(I hear the guy laughing until he hangs up. I get another phone call.)

Me: “No ma’am, but you can leave a message after the beep. Beep.” *customer starts laughing*

Coworker: “Did you really just answer the phone like that?”

Me: “Yes, and will continue to do so.”
