How About Bringing That Brain Out Of Retirement

Caller: “Hi, I’m looking for [coworker].”

Me: “I’m sorry, but she retired last month.”

Caller: “Oh…can you have her call me back?”

Me: “I’m sorry if I wasn’t clear before. She retired and is no longer employed here. Can you tell me what you are calling about so I can direct you to someone else?”

Caller: “No, no, that’s fine. I’ll just call for her again later.”

Me: “Sir, I’m sorry, but she won’t be here later. She retired. She’s gone.”

Caller: “It’s okay. I’ll just call for her later.”

Me: “Sir, you don’t understand. Other members of our group have taken over her responsibilities, so if you can tell me what it is you needed to talk to her about, I can direct you to someone who can help you.”

Caller: “So, can I call back next week?”
