Like our newest tangenteer, the little store I am employed at has its share of cute little callers with nothing on their little mundane plates than to make obnoxious calls.  Admittedly, I was one of those at one time or another so it should come as no surprise that I like to play along when the opportunity presents itself.  Wednesday night, the newest teenage employee asked me to take a phone call after she failed to clearly “hear the person on the other line”:

Jamiahsh: Hello… may I help you

Customer:  Yes, do you sell breasts?

J: Why, yes we do.  As a matter of fact, we have a 40lb box on sale for $1.49/lb (usually $3.99/lb)

C:  How are they?

J:  Oh, they are nice, plump, round, firm.  Just your type.

C:  Ok… thank you very much (sounding rather shocked but with a chuckle being heard in the background.  I think I was on speakerphone)

J:  You are very welcome.  Have a nice evening.

The teenage cashier was grinning from ear-to-ear after I hung the phone up.  I must admit that I thought the incident rather humorous myself.  Fun to be in charge once in a while.

    That’s funny!
    And you didn’t even say anything that would have been offensive had it NOT been a prank call – win-win!
    An unfortunate experience I had when I worked at Wendy’s was having a rude customer in the drive-thru. I had had a bad day (no excuse) and wasn’t going to let her push me around, so I gave the ‘tude right back… problem was when she got to my window, I saw it was big boss #4 – that means that big boss 1 was in charge of our whole store, big boss 2 was in charge of a few stores in our area, big boss 3 was in charge of all the stores in the region, and big boss 4 (who was testing our service at the drive-thru that day) was in charge of all of the Chicagoland stores – oops. Luckily for me, I just got a little reminder from my shift manager who was a good friend of mine also – I got lucky and learned a valuable lesson about always trying to put my best face forward.

    Whoops, taylhis!

    I wonder what the pranker was planning to say before you upstaged him. 😆
