You Got The Wrongest Email

| Upstate, NY, USA | Uncategorized

Caller: “I’d like to get more information about [program].”

Me: “I’d be glad to help you with that, sir. Actually, we sent an email to you earlier in the week about it.”

Caller: “Really? I didn’t see it. Maybe it’s in my spam folder.”

(He checks his spam folder.)

Caller: “Well, I don’t see your email. There’s something about how male-enhancement drugs can improve my bedroom performance. That’s not from you guys, is it?”

Me: “Thank you for calling [company name] tech support. How can I help you today?”

Caller: *thick inner city accent* “Yeah. Phone don’t work. It’s all like ‘WHAAAAAAT’, and needs to be like ‘YAAYUUUUHHH’.

Me: “What exactly is not working, sir?”

Caller: “My phone.”

Me: “I understand your phone is having issues. What exactly is it doing?”

Caller: *slowly and deliberately* It’s all like ‘WHAAAAAAT’, and needs to be like ‘YAAYUUUUHHH’.

Me: “How about we just exchange the phone?”

Playing Unfair With The Fairer Sex

| Norway | Top

(I provide internet support over the phone. I am the only qualified technician working today. I also happen to be female.)

Me: “Welcome to [company name] internet support. My name is [name]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Oh, hello sweetheart. I didn’t realize I’d reached the reception. Would you please connect me to internet support?”

Me: “This is internet support. What can I do for you?”

Customer: “I want help with a technical problem. I can’t talk to you. I want to talk to a man!”

Me: “Sir, I can assure you that I’ll be able to help you with your technical problem. I am the qualified technician here today.”

Customer: “You are a girl! You have no clue how to help me! This is man stuff. I demand to speak with a man!”

(This continues for ten minutes. The customer gets more and more aggravated, and starts yelling nasty comments. I give up, and connect him to my coworker, who sits next to me. My coworker is male.)

Coworker: “Welcome to [company name] internet support. My name is [name]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Finally, a man! My internet is so unstable these days; I can’t seem to stay on it! It takes forever to load and the speed is horrible!”

Coworker: “Sir, I see the problem, and I’m sending a report. It will be fixed on Monday.”

Customer: “What? It’s Saturday! Why do you have to wait until Monday? I want it fixed now!”

Coworker: “Well, we would need a qualified technician to log into the system to fix your line. It’s Saturday, so there is only one qualified technician working.”

Customer: “Get him to fix it now! I demand to speak with him!”

Coworker: “Sir, you have already spoken to her.”

Customer: “Wait. Her?”

Coworker: “Yes. You spoke to our only qualified technician earlier today. You yelled profanities at her, and demanded to speak to a man.”

Customer: “So, I’ll be lucky if my internet is up again on Monday?”

Coworker: “You’ll be lucky if you have internet at all.”

Massive Fan But Sadly Not A Breeze

| London, UK | Money, Uncategorized

(Customer calls to order some Justin Bieber-printed merchandise. We get to the checkout phase.)

Me: “Right, that’s [price].”

Caller: “I’m a massive fan. Can I get a fan discount?”

Me: “Pardon?”

Caller: “I’m a member of the fan club. I should get discount for that or something!”

Me: “I’m sorry, madam, but we aren’t able to give that kind of discount.”

Caller: “This is appalling. You should give his fans money off! We deserve it! His fans shouldn’t have to pay as much for his products!”

Me: “Madam, I doubt anyone who wasn’t a fan would be buying these anyway. So, technically, you are getting the fan price.”

*silence*

Caller: “Screw this. I’ll do it online!”

Not The Apple From The Tree Of Knowledge

Me: “Thank you for calling [mobile carrier’s name]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Yeah, I have an issue with my iPhone.”

Me: “I will be happy to help you. What is the issue with your iPhone?

Customer: “It’s just that when I turn it on, the apple on the screen appears bitten. Is that okay?”
