Disconnect your number for a few days so that they are forced to try calling the right person! You did your job, so they have no good reason to treat you like crap.

I can totally relate! I've come to the conclusion that there is a disproportionate number of stupid people in this country.

Sorry 'bout your ordeal

Thanks guys.. well the inane amount of dumbness continued today.. phone rang.. i answered as usual.. now, this is my actual office, no one answers the phone for me.. and there is no one else IN my office but me (can i just tell you how happy i was to have a door that closes yesterday???) so anyway, i get this person who OBVIOUSLY DID NOT UNDERSTAND the words BLAH BLAH PARAMEDICS and asked me if he could buy a course textbook. HUH??? Paramedics = sells textbooks.. ??? WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFF

SO, i politely say (bite tongue! bite! bite!) Sorry, you have the incorrect extension, i will SEND YOU UP TO EDUCATION (yes, they sell the texts).. well, unknown to me, no one is up there yet, they are all at classes.. so, i assume that this person got the education voice mail CUZ HE CALLED ME BACK.. did he NOT HEAR ME TELL HIM BEFORE HE HAD THE WRONG NUMBER???

ARGH! SPIT! GRIT TEETH SPEW ALL KINDS OF FOUL LANGUAGE!!!!

Is there any way you can request to have your extension number changed?

I think if that was happening to me, I'd be in a straight jacket by now.


I really feel for ya!

people are so ignorant! do they NOT hear the recording when they leave a message. it's obviously not a department that would have x-rays! and the nerve of them yelling at you!!!
