(Note: I work in the firearms department and am female.)

Me: “Hi! Thank you for call—”

Male Caller: “I told them to get me firearms, d*** it!”

Me: “This is the firearms department. How may I—”

Male Caller: “FIREARMS. FI-URRR-A-HARMS! Ain’t no women in guns. Mens the
only ones who can know anything ’bout my situation!”

(Unfortunately, I have become used to this and hand the phone to a nearby male coworker.)

Coworker: “Yes, sir… uh huh… Well, sir, for that situation you would have to talk to our ATF compliance associate. Okay… I won’t put you on hold… They are standing right here.”

(My coworker hands the phone back to me.)

Me: “Hi, ATF Compliance!”

Male Caller: *click*
