I'm not usually one to post twice in one day...especially when I've been AWOL in the blog world the past couple of weeks. However I could not pass up sharing this amazing conversation I had today on the phone with a client. Let me set the stage for you...I'm sitting at my desk, painting my nails a nice springy pink. (What?! I'm still thinking springy thoughts!)
My phone rings, I politely answer:
Me: This is Stacy, how can I help you.
Him: Yeah, I see your area code is 801. Does that mean you are in Salt Lake?
Me: Yes, that's right.
Him: Well what is this call regarding?
Me: I'm sorry?
Him: What are you calling me for? What is this call in regards to?
Me: I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean. You called me.
Him: No I didn't.
Me: Yes, you did.
Him: No, I didn't.
Me: Well sir, I'm sitting at my desk, my phone rang, I answered it and there you were.
Him: Hold on.
(I hear mumbling in the background)
Him: I guess my son called you back. Someone from your company called and he hit the return from caller ID. What is this call regarding?
Me: Well, we are a houseboat company. Did you call us about a houseboat trip?
Him: Oh yeah, that's right. I did.
Unfortunately the call did not get much better once we got that all straightened out.
Is it October yet?
