The "I need to vent" thread


Recommended Posts

An actual phone conversation I had at work. Word for word. I pledge that this is not exaggerated or punched up in anyway.

ME: Thank you for calling (company).

90 YEAR OLD LADY: I'm very upset!

ME: Oh? I'm sorry. What can I -

LADY: I recived a letter in the mail today, and it greatly upset me!

ME: I'm sorry, ma'am; can you -

LADY: I was not expecting to get this letter! I got it today, and now you've greatly upset me!

ME: Ma'am, please. I'm sorry. Can you tell me what the letter said?

LADY: I don't know! I haven't opened it yet!

ME: . . .

I may have that phone convo beat.

Me: *company greeting*

Customer: Is this *competitor*?

Me: I'd hope not, that would mean I'm way late for my job at *my company*

Customer: Oh...well, since I've got you, are you guys open?

Me: Umm..yes. It's only 5 pm.

Customer: Well, you never know. Sarcasm isn't all that funny either.

Me: Well, maybe you should make sure you know where you're calling and at what time.

Customer: I've had it, that's it, you've lost me as a customer, I'm going to *my company* instead~!

After all of that, plus asking me if she called our competition, she still had no idea where she was calling.

Ha. That reminds me of a moment when I was working at Gamestop last year. It was about 3 in the afternoon or so, and a lady walks in. We have about 6 other customers in the store, all three TV's blastingly loud and I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off because my employees were shitheads.

So the lady walks up to me, looks around for a second, and asks me "Are you guys still open?"

No mam, we were only open for two hours, but these other customers haven't left for some reason.

My new job at Border's is even more hilarious though, as I'll be walking around the store, pushing a giant cart of books around, not to mention I'm wearing a nametag and a headset and I've been organizing shit for the past four hours.

"Hey, do you work here?"

<_<

"No, I'm just a very helpful customer with a lot of time on my hands."

I've been to enough Alexisonfire, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Haste the Day shows to know that this kind of inanity has taken a stranglehold on the typical current hardcore/screamo audience.

I went to an Alexisonfire show roughly three months ago and four people out of about 12,000 tried to do that. They promptly got thrown out for that bullshit.

Anyways, the point I was making is that there are idiots at every concert, just most aren't as amusing.

You Bastards! I always wanted to go to an Alexisonfire show

Why do mailmen (and mailwomen) bend mail that clearly says "Do Not Bend"?

Bizarre compulsion? Inability to resist temptation?

That sucks. I used t subscribe to SPIN magazine when I was like 15 and for 4 months straight it arrived in my mailbox sans cover. They just ripped it off clean along the seam...bastards!

My work just got internet access. The problem? The stupid blocker they use called Sonicwall. So far, the only sites I've found that it blocks is downloading Firefox and Thunderbird. Two of the most legitimate sites sites out there. The guy who installed it said it's to keep people from downloading child porn. What a crock.

I've already got Firefox on here. I was trying to get Thunderbird, and just couldn't believe it was tagged as a non family friendly site. I would be pissed if I was Mozilla.

edit: Adobe and Apple are also being blocked. I can download Pownce, but not the Adobe AIR needed to run it. This is definitely strange.
