Me: “Thank you for calling [Business] Tech Shop, [My Name] speaking. Can I help you?”

Irate customer: “Can I speak to a f****** American?”

Me: “Last time I checked, I’m an American. Can I help you?”

Customer: “Oh, yeah? Well, where are you!?”

Me: “Mount Laurel, New Jersey — in the store you called.”

Customer: “That sounds like it’s in India.”

Me: “Unless New Jersey has moved recently, we’re part of the US.”

Customer: “Just let me speak to an American, d*** it!”

Me: “Yes, sir, please hold.”
