Are we just getting sillier by the minute? I mean the country as a whole. Or maybe it's just the cross-section I deal with on a daily basis. Phone conversation I just finished up:
Me: May I speak with John Smith?
Female on the phone: He was supposed to leave at 4:00 but let me check if he's still here.
:::places me on hold:::
Female: Nope. He's gone for the day.
Me: OK, may I leave a message?
Female: Hold on.
:::places me on hold again:::
Male pics up: How can I help you?
Me: I was holding so I can leave a message for John Smith
:::gives him all my contact info:::
Male: So...you want him to call you back?
Me, in my head:
No. I want him to take the note and wipe his butt with it. Of COURSE I want him to call me back! Really? Are you really asking me this? Why do you think I'm leaving the message??
Honest to God. I simply CANNOT with people sometimes!
