Calling America: Where Immigration Never Happened

, , , , , | Right | April 10, 2019

(My employer is contracted with a very popular cell phone company; we take calls and treat every caller just like a normal customer. They take great pride that they are one of the few remaining companies that don’t outsource to other countries. One day a man calls in. Note: my local accent is pretty much neutral American.)

Customer: “I thought you guys were supposed to only be in America.”

Me: “We are, sir.”

Customer: “Then how did I get someone with a very thick Asian accent the last time I called?”

Me: “I have no control over other employees’ accents, sir.”

(It clearly never occurred to the man that immigration is still a thing.)
