How not to answer the phone….

Posted by RenB on May 2, 2009 – 2:38 pm

You sometimes get in a rut, you know? Everyday is a routine. Some things aren’t always ok for you and you get testy. Today I went off the charts for PC. And then I had to laugh my ass off. I WISH I could have seen her face, when I picked up the phone, and thought it was Peter…. Lesson? Listen to who is on there before going off the charts for being testy.

    When I worked in the little hole-in-the-wall pizza place a few years back, one of my duties was to place orders for supplies. We had a form we kept everything listed on, and one of the items we commonly ordered was listed as “clear plastic cont.”, “cont.” being a shortened form of “containers”.

    Can you see where this is going?

    I’m on the phone placing the order one day, listing off all the needed items, not paying attention to what I’m saying because, hey, I’m just reading aloud, right? Went a little something like this:

    “We need 10 bags of flour, 14 cases of mozzarella, 1 pound of yeast, 1 box of clear plastic cunts, 13 boxes of…”

    “Excuse me?”

    “Huh?”

    “You want a box of plastic WHAT?”

    *a moment of silence while I think back to what I said*

    “OH MY GAWD! CONTAINERS! I meant to say CONTAINERS!”

    Yeah, that required a bit of explanation on my part. My boss, luckily, thought it was the funniest thing ever and still refers to them as clear plastic cunts to this day.

    Oh, CC, that is one of the funniest things.. am still laughing and coughing, and the couch critter is still clueless as to why.

    My best come back of all time was when I was waiting tables in Salzburg. A candle-light room in a wine place with a limited menu. And I would seat the ladies, light the candles, and ask them if they wanted the wine list or the menu from downstairs.

    Was young, dark-haired,and pale.

    Would do my thing, and they would look at me disparagingly, and ask, ‘Are you Yugoslavian?’ At first I thought it was funny, you know?

    But one day it got to be too much. And I exploded. And it just popped out of my mouf….

    ‘No, am an African from the Black Forest, but the Austrian sun is SO hot, it bleached my skin fucking white.’

    CC, it came out of nowhere, and I do not know to this day where it came from….

    But I just turned heel, walked into the kitchen, and told my boss YOU go out and wait on those people, because I will NOT.

    Service people get so dumped on.

    We all get our day of just going where you do not want to go normally. That was mine.

    It wasn’t funny at the time. But I can still laugh about it so many years later.

    I was a fresh little bastard when I had to be….

    And I loved your anecdote.

    Anyone else who has flipped out and not been pc in their job? Fess up, now…

    BWUAAAAHAAHAAHAAAHAHAAAA!!!!!!!!!!CC, that is my first real laugh in a long damned time. I could just see his face, too, that shit. I’m sure that he brings it up whenever possible, huh.

    And Rene’, honey, I hate telemarketers as much as anybody, but I don’t think that I’ve yet gone to THOSE lengths to skeer ’em off… heh heh heh…

    Somewhere in Austria, a young lady is seriously re-thinking her career choices…
