Stupid people of the day thread

#1 Post by Lilyael » 23 Oct 2009 15:42

I just had the most amazingly idiotic person on the phone. She returned a certain form which requires one to give one's mother's maiden name, so she put the first name. ( you'd be amazed how often this happens actually ) I rang up asking for the surname and she said "I don't know it, she died before I was born."

:shock:

Then she told me her mother'd died when she was only two, and said she had two names. "Was one of them her surname ?" I ask, managing to keep the "you are such an eejit" tone from my voice - go me.
"yes." she said.

:shock:

Wish I hadn't bothered. It's like pulling teeth with some of these people. And they want jobs with us ? :o
.......and you deserve us, Leviathan

The stupid award of the day goes to an hysteric bitch that called me (I work as a technical assistant, now temporarily I'm back to getting phone calls, usually I answer mails):

"Can you please give me your case number?" (so I can look for it in the database and know who the hell you are)
"Case number???? I don't know about a case number, listen, I don't know anything about computers"


:roll:
"There's a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny's lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I've always been a fool"
~~~~~~~~~~~~
A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer
