(While shopping I need to use the restroom, after going in I hear the following conversation:)
Other Occupant: “Yeah, I’d like to know why my bank charged me this amount. Huh? Hold on sweetie. I can’t hear you.” *puts phone on speaker* “What was that?”
Poor Customer Service Agent: “I need your account number ,ma’am, before I can look up anything.”
Other Occupant: “Oh, sure, it’s [number].”
Poor Customer Service Agent: “Okay, that charge was an excess transfer fee.”
Other Occupant: “Hold on.”
(The other occupant flushes the toilet.)
Other Occupant: *walking past* “So what is an excess transfer fee?”
Poor Customer Service Agent: “Um…”
(The worst part? She didn’t wash her hands as she left.)
(It’s my first day working at my new career. I just graduated college and my boss asked me to call a client and remind them their sentencing is tomorrow. It’s the Thursday prior to Memorial Day weekend. This is my first client call:)
Me: “Hi, this is [My Name] from [Law Office]. I’m calling to remind you that your sentencing is tomorrow at 1:00 pm. [Lawyer] asks that you meet him in front of the courthouse at 12:45 pm or so.”
Client: “Oh! Well, I don’t think I can make it.”
Client: “Yeah, um, I don’t think I can make it. I just gassed up my motorhome and I’m leaving for Memorial Day tomorrow morning.”
(At this point, I was completely floored and not sure what to do. It’s court… not a choice. Do I explain that she’s going to have a warrant if she doesn’t show? I told her I will talk to my boss and get back to her. He ended up calling her. She did show up for court.)
