Takes One To Call One

| Manhattan, NY, USA | Right | December 21, 2011

(I am taking calls on Thanksgiving day.)

Customer: “Wow! A real person!”

Me: “Yes, sir! We’re staffed 24/7/365!”

Customer: “They make you guys work holidays. That’s terrible! Why would they do that?”

Me: *smiling to myself* “In case someone calls in for help.”

Customer: “What kind of work-a-holic would call in on a holiday?”

    The same people who have the TV repairman out on Thanksgiving or any other holiday. Either they don’t celebrate, or they don’t care. I personally could care less about most holidays and volunteer to work them. When we were told we did Christmas work, they reminded us that not everyone is a Christian, and they watch TV too. Granted, we will try to do everything possible to NOT work and it usually happens through pulling jobs ahead and working late days leading up.
