You’re Like The Markiplier Of Retail

I manage a cell phone and computer repair store. I have been told by multiple people that I have a good “radio announcer” voice over the phone — deep and clear, and I enunciate every syllable.

One day, I answer a call at my store the same way I always do.

Me: “Thank you for calling [Store]! What can I do for you today?”

The man replies, sounding a little out of it — either really tired or really high.

Caller: “Uhhhh… Is this a real person? Or is this one of those animation s***s?”

I am in a silly mood today, so without skipping a beat, and using the same voice and energy as my greeting, I answer as follows.

Me: “This is one of those animation s***s, sir.”

Caller: “Danggg, I almost thought you were a real person! Can I talk to a real person?”

Me: “Not a problem, sir. Connecting you to a representative now.”

I put him on hold because both my employee and I were laughing so hard that neither of us could pick the phone back up for almost a full minute. After we finished composing ourselves, my employee picked up the phone, answered his question, and completed the call.
