My calls are about 50/50. I’d say roughly 50% of the time the calls are uneventful and therefore amazing. 40% of the time a customer flips shit on me and has a fucking fit over something stupid. The other 10% are, well, just a little different…
Winston: “Okay ma’am, I think that settles your payment, you should be all good to. Is there anything else I can help you with today?”
Customer: “I know my nurse told me not to flirt, but I just can’t help it. Do you have yourself a wife Mr. Winston?”
Winston: “Um, no, but I don’t think this is…”
Oh no, this isn’t happening.
Customer: “Hot dog! How about a girlfriend?”
Nope, it’s happening. Better lay down the law and hang up before it gets any weirder.
Winston: “Yes, I do have a girlfriend, now is there anything else I can help you…”
Customer: “Ah, shoot! Well you call me if you ever break up.”
Yes, I’ll be sure to call the crazy Telescreen customer if I become single again. Good idea.
Customer: “I’ve never flown before, but I’d fly out to see you.”
This is my nightmare. This is it.
Customer: “Or you could come visit Montana.”
I think I’m changing my name and moving to Mexico actually.
Customer: “I’m really fun. Everyone says that I’m so much fun. I really is, I swear it!”
It’s official. I’m changing my name and moving to Mexico.
