ha ha.. I bet there are lots of stories like this from call centres
Clara works in the customer service call centre of a national pager
company. There, she deals with the usual complaints regarding poor
pager operation, as well as the occasional loony caller demanding to be
paged less often, more often, or by more interesting people.
A good call came from Arthur, who repeatedly complains that he keeps being paged by ‘Lucille.’
Arthur was told that he would have to call
her and tell her to stop paging him.
‘She don’t never leave no number, so I can’t call her back,’ Arthur grizzled, unhappily.
After three such calls, someone thought to ask how he knew it was
Lucille if she didn’t leave a number.
‘She leaves her name,’ was Arthur’s triumphant reply.
After establishing that the customer had a numeric-only pager, the light bulb came on.
does she spell her name? Clara politely enquired.
‘L-O-W C-E-L-L,’ dictated Arthur clearly.
Yet another technical problem solved!
