What A Trashy Request

, , , , | Right | October 26, 2018

(It’s early in the morning, and I’m the only checker on with a bit of a line when the phone rings. I answer it.)

Me: “Good morning, and thank you for calling your friendly [Store]. This is [My Name]. How may I direct your call?”

Caller: “Yes, ma’am, I was wondering if you could tell me when trash day is?”

Me: “I’m not sure, sir.”

Caller: “You don’t know what day they pick up trash in this neighborhood?”

Me: “No, sir, it really varies depending on the company and the neighbourhood.”

Caller: “Just pick a day; I won’t be mad.”

Me: “Sir, your guess is as good as mine. I don’t live in the neighborhood around the store, and even when I did, I lived in apartments so I didn’t have to worry about trash pickup.”

Caller: “Well, you were no help.” *click*
