Calling It A Night

| FL, USA | Bad Behavior, Time

(I work 12-hour night shifts, so when searching for services I prefer to do as much as possible online before I have to deal with people over the phone as most businesses return calls when I’m trying to sleep. The night before this occurs, I had been searching for mortgage information online and was annoyed when, after entering my information, rather than giving me the promised quote the site simply stated that someone would be contacting me. Sure enough, at around 10 am the next day, my phone rings:)

Me: *sleep slurred* “Hello?”

Mortgage Representative: “Hi! This is [Mortgage Company]! How are you today?”

Me: “I worked last night. I work again tonight. I need to go back to sleep.”

Mortgage Representative: “Great! So, I just need to confirm your information in order to get you your quote. The structure is a single family home?”

Me: “…which part of ‘I need to go back to sleep’ did you not understand?”

Mortgage Representative: “Ah… okay. When would be a good time to call you back?”

Me: “Don’t.” *click*

(He didn’t call back, but when I woke up again I had an email from the company announcing “We’ve been trying to get in touch with you!” I deleted it.)
