Service in Lynnwood WA
Robocall: “This is [company]. Please call us about your account within 24 hours. Our office hours are 9 AM to 5 PM US eastern time, Monday through Friday. Thank you.”
I received this call at noon on Saturday. So I am supposed to call by noon on Sunday, and they won’t be there to answer.
Also I happen to know they want me to call and pay my bill for service in January and February. Even though the account was terminated at the end of November.
<I>A customer is browsing the pesticides.</I> <B>Me:</B> Hey! Can I help you find anything today?
<b>Customer:</B> Do you guys have the rat poison that disintegrates their corpses? My sister told me about it.
Customer: I don’t want to get the stuff where I have to find and clean up their bodies later.
<B>Me:</B> I’m…sorry, I don’t think we carry that one.
(I work reception at a gym and we get a ridiculous amount of list property, at least a large bin bag per week. I take a call from an older male member)
Customer - “hello, I can’t seem to find my tennis racquet and was wondering if I’d left it there?”
Me - “sure, can you describe it for me? We have quite a few racquets in lost property.”
Customer - “well… It’s got a long, thick shaft.”
(I had to put the phone on mute so he wouldn’t hear me crying with laughter)
Note: Apheresis is a type of blood donation where the blood is separated, only the platelets or plasma are kept, and the rest of the blood is cycled back into the body.
Caller: “Hello, this is (caller) from the American Red Cross calling to speak to (husband) about scheduling an apheresis appointment”
Me (calling out): “(Husband), It’s the Red Cross. They want to suck your blood!”
Caller: ” No, just his platelets…”
(A woman comes in the lobby, extremely distressed.)
Woman: “You have to help me! My ex husband has just called me and-and he’s staying in this hotel! He says he’s going to commit suicide!”
Me: “[Manager], come here!”
Manager: *who heard it all* “What’s his name?”
Woman: *gives name*
Me: “I have that name in [room].”
Manager: *to woman* “Ok, let’s go!”
(They go to the room and find the man unconscious with an empty bottle of pills. Apparently he had overdosed. We call the ambulance, who comes to take him to the hospital and pump his stomach. He survived, and was taken to get mental help for his depression. Just in time; if the woman hadn’t come in, we would have never known. She saved his life!)
