Phones: For Texting Back Whoever Just Called You After It’s Stopped Ringing

, , , | Right | August 30, 2019

(I deliver pizza at my second job. When I check on a delivery, the system prints out a receipt with the customer’s order, name, number, address, and any comments they’ve left. Usually, I’ll plug their address into Google Maps and get there with no issue, but sometimes that doesn’t work. Maybe they entered the address wrong online, the person taking the order phone misheard them, or something similar. Whatever the reason, I will call them from my cell phone to try to figure out where to go. I can’t tell you the number of times this has happened.)

Me: *arrives at the address on the receipt, realizes the address or room number is incorrect*

Me: *calls the customer from my cell phone, no answer*

Me: *scrambles for several minutes trying to figure out where to go*

Me: *knocks on door*

Customer: *opens door*

Me: “Hi, sorry I took so long. I wasn’t given the right address.”

Customer: “Oh, was that you who called? I wondered who that might have been.”

Me: *screams internally*
