The Marketing Misdirector

, , , | Working | November 8, 2019

(The phone rings.)

Me: “[Bank], how can I help you?”

Caller: “I need to speak with the branch manager or the marketing director.”

Me: “Our manager is on vacation. Can I take a message?”

Caller: “No. Did you hear what I said? Give me your marketing director. Is he in today?”

Me:She is based in [City]. If you’ll hold for just a second, I can get her phone number for you.”

Caller: “You don’t have someone onsite?”

Me: “No. Everything is centralized out of [City]. Hang on just a second; I’ve almost got that phone number—”

Caller: “I’ve gotten three different phone numbers for you people already. Just forget it!”

Me: “Okay, have a nice day!”

Caller: “UGH!” *hangs up*

Coworker: “What was that?”

Me: “A very angry telemarketer.”
