I just had a phone call at work that went like this:
Me: Hello, Jiminy speaking.
Guy: I want a Stella McCartney Adidas tersports hat.
Me: Sorry, I didn't quite catch that, what was it you were...
Guy: (interrupting) Stella McCartney Adidas tersports hat.
(At this stage I started getting self conscious that my voice was monotonous and he'd mistaken me for one of those automated voice recognition bots. Luckily there wasn't the sound of him mashing buttons to try and get back to the main menu. Also I couldn't think of any system that would have a question where one of the spoken response options would be 'Stella McCartney Adidas tersports hat'*)
Me: I'm not sure what you're talking about, we're actually an organisation that does 'x' (where x is completely unrelated to Stella McCartney Adidas tersports hats)
Guy: Oh, so you don't know about Stella McCartney Adidas tersports hats?
Me: (Tersely) No.
What the fuck? What is wrong with you man? And how many times do you have to say Stella McCartney tersports hat?
I did some research and it turns out that a Stella McCartney tersports hat looks like this:
It did remind me of the Bai Long Tong phone call I had a while back...
Phones are crazy.
Fridays are awesome.
Tell me your crazy phone stories. TELL ME THEM!
* Unless the question was "What is the shittest hat ever?"
