    Time To Try Another Tactic

    | Wisconsin, USA | Employees, Family & Kids, Liars/Scammers

    (Note: I work for a family-run business. My father is the owner, and I am his only child, a girl. My father and I are the only ones in the office when a call comes in.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling [business], this is Sarah. How can I help you?”

    Caller: “Yes, I would like to speak to [my father] right away.”

    Me: “May I tell him who’s calling? ”

    Caller: *snottily* “No, you may not! Just put me through.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but [father] is on the phone at the moment. May I tell him who’s calling?”

    Caller: “I don’t care! Tell him that his daughter is on the line and it’s very important!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, who did you say? ”

    Caller: “UGH! I said I’m his daughter. Can’t you hear? Now, put me through!”

    (I pull the phone half an inch away from my face as if I’m talking to someone off the phone.)

    Me: “Hey, Dad! It’s me from the future on line one. Do you want the spoilers or not?”

    Caller: *click*
