OK, maybe it's because I had to deal with my eyes being so out of whack yesterday, from all those drops, and maybe it's because we didn't get to see all of the movie we went to yesterday because of rude and loud goof-balls, and maybe it's because I'm just plain mean....
Our telephone just rang and I jumped on it because by dear hubs is taking a well deserved catnap and I didn't want to wake him. I said hello and someone very sarcastically say "hello?" I then said, "yes, I said hello", they then said, still using that same tone of voice, "why do you say Hello, is this not Advance?". Well, I was a professional "telephone greeter" for years (customer service, receptionist, catalog order taker, etc.) so I firmly replied, "no Sir, if this was Advance, I would have answered "Advance" and since it is not and you obviously have reached a wrong number, I answered hello". The caller replied, "I am sorry, please excuse the sarcasm". As I was hanging up, I realized my professional skills are really rusty, because I just called a rather deep voiced FEMALE, "sir". That will teach her to be rude to folks, especially those working on Saturday. In a way I feel like I just took up for someone that couldn't speak for themself. So try to keep in mind, next time you are thinking of being rude to someone on the phone, you might have reached me by mistake!
Well, I'm off to take a few pictures and post them and maybe read a little. I just needed to vent and rant and I chose this for my forum. Oh, wasn't this your lucky day?
Love ya, and I'll be back soon and in a better mood, I'm sure.
