I am still getting calls from people too stupid to realize they need to put the 1-888 in front of a toll-free number.

Today's tried to tell me he'd called the right number. *rolls eyes*

That's almost as bad as being 1 number off from the cab company.

2am wake up calls from drunks aren't fun.

This is mildly amusing, in a way. Your example would just suck.

Yeah it did. We had it changed immediately. We changed it the first time because of my moms relatives.

The temptation there for mischief is compelling.

"Oh, yes, that's us. You need a repair? Sure, I can get a driver right out there to fix that, he should be there in an hour. Also, if you need to contact us again, don't forget to dial the 1-888 prefix, because that gives you priority in the customer service queue."*

"A full refund? Yes, absolutely, I can do that. Just call our shipping center at 888-whatever, and give them authorization code 7YGU4X3LKB. We'll arrange a return shipping label and credit your account even though the warranty's expired."*

Wow. I can actually hear the customer service people cursing my name from here...

( *Do not actually try this at home...though 'putting him on hold' by setting the phone next to a bad Tejano radio station is fun)

Much love,

Or, I could simply listen to their whole story, THEN tell them they have the wrong number. In my best receptionist voice.*

*I am not a receptionist, but I sound like one on the phone.
