These Messages Are Damaging To My Health

, , , | Right | December 31, 2018

(I work at the scheduling department for annual health visits.)

Me: “Hi. I’m calling to schedule [Patient] for her annual health visit, etc.” *insert spiel*

Customer: “Hello? I’m sorry, I can’t hear you; can you speak up a bit, please?”

Me: *increases volume and speaks a bit slower and louder* “Hi. I’m calling to schedule [Patient] for her annual health visit. May I speak with [Patient], please?”

Customer: “Still can’t hear you.”

Me: “Hello, hello!” *increasing volume to highest level* “Can you hear me now?”

Customer: *laughing out loud* “Sorry, just kidding. This is a voicemail. Just leave a message after the beep, thanks!” *beep*

(D***, she got me, all right.)
