These Callers Have Inky Intent

, , , , | Working | June 25, 2018

(I occasionally get calls on my personal cell phone from people I work with, so I have gotten in the habit of always answering my phone by stating my name if it is from a number I don’t recognize. One morning I get a call that appears as “No Caller ID.” I normally don’t answer these, but I have also recently entered a radio sweepstakes, so I decide to answer on the off-chance they want to tell me I’ve just won $1,000.)

Me: “Hello, this is [My Name].”

Caller: “Hi, [My Name], how are you doing this morning?

Me: “Fine, how are you?”

Caller: “Oh, you know, can’t complain. Say, could you tell me who supplies the ink and everything for the printer?”

Me: “What printer?”

Caller: “You guys don’t use a printer or fax?”

Me: “I don’t own a printer, no. And this is my personal number, not a business.”

Caller: *suddenly offended* “Oh, well, you said this is [My Name].” *click*

(I wasn’t aware that I was a business!)
