Their Prank A Far Cry From Success

| Right | August 4, 2017

(Working at a well-known video game store can be fun, but we do tend to get plenty of prank calls.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [Store]. This is [My Name]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, do you have Far Cry 6?”

Me: “Sorry, sir, that game doesn’t exist, but Far Cry 4 does.”

Customer: “Oh, how about Mario on the Xbox one?”

Me:Mario is only on Nintendo products.”

Customer: “But my friend told me it was on Xbox.”

(Getting a little frustrated at this point, but I maintain my cool.)

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but your friend is wrong.”

Customer: “Okay, then, can I ask one more question?”

Me: “Sure.”

Customer: “Is this the Krusty Krab?”

(Without missing a beat.)

Me: “No, this is Patrick.”

(I hang up the phone immediately and my manager comes over.)

Manager: “Prank call?”

Me: “Yeah, you heard that?”

Manager: “Yes, and the end was brilliant.”
