They Got There In The End-o

| Working | December 19, 2014

(I live in Washington, but I bought a motorcycle online from a seller in Florida. I am looking for a shipping center that can receive it, so I am calling around to gauge my options.)

Employee: “Hello, [Shipping Center].”

Me: “Hi, I have a question for you.”

Employee: “Sure, go ahead.”

Me: “What is the biggest package you can take?”

Employee: “Do you really think I haven’t heard that one before? F*** off until you get a better joke.” *hangs up*

(Not quite the response I was expecting, but judging by my wording, I don’t blame him. I give him another call.)

Employee: “Hello, [Shipping Center].”

Me: “I’m really sorry about earlier, but I bought a motorcycle out-of-state. Do you guys accept shipments that big?”

Employee: “Oh, that’s what you meant? Yeah, we can store motorcycles.”

(I talked to him some more about setting up an account, expected shipping dates, and other important stuff. On the day my motorcycle arrived, I actually met this guy in person. He was actually a very friendly fellow, and he’s also a very big fan of motorcycles. His biggest pet peeve happened to be prank callers, and, by his own admission, that is the only time anyone saw his bad side.)
