We’ll Whip That Bike Right Up For You

, , , | Right | August 17, 2018

(I work at a bike retailer. We typically call customers who order bikes online to see if they indeed want the bikes to be built, and to confirm when we can complete the order.)

Me: “Hi there. It’s [My Name] calling from [Company] at [Location], with regards to the order you’ve placed with us for a [frame size] [Bike]. This is just a quick call to confirm that you would like the bike built, and which day you are free to collect it from us.”

Customer: *sounds awkward* “Sorry, um…” *audible whipping sound, then the customer speaks aside* “You b****!” *background laughter*

Me: “I can call back if this isn’t a good time.”

Customer: “No, it’s fine. I’m just in the changing room at the gym.”

(The call continued as normal and was ended with an apology from the customer. I put the phone down and broke down in laughter. Thank you, random customer; you made my day!)
