    US: You have our address wrong, and we are not getting the invoices you're sending.
    Woman at other company: Is your address - - - Kutztown PA 19530?
    US: NO! It's New Tripoli PA
    Woman: Well, do you spell New Tripoli "k - u - t - z - t - o - w - n"?
    US: [​IMG] [​IMG] Nooooo... It is spelled "n e w t r i p o l i"
    Woman: oOOooh, ok.

    Boy was that a conversation I hope to never have again, with anybody! It was just like [​IMG], but then I realized how funny this whole thing was [​IMG] [​IMG] Wonder if she thought through that conversation after we hung up... [​IMG]

    At first I wasn't sure if she was actually serious, but she was. I guess she was just reading the paper and listening to us saying new tripoli, and not actually paying attention to what she was asking... I hope! I've had days like that too, but nothing like that, that I can remember [​IMG]

    That reminds me of the woman that called about meeting a construction site.

    Her: I am here and it is a big place. Will there be signs or flags
    Me: No - it is a dirt lot
    Her: Where do I stand?
    Me; Stand anywhere you want, we will find ya.

    I often ask myself how people like this got the job in the first place. I mean seriously [​IMG] If you think New Tripoli could possibly have a "K" or a "Z" in it then maybe you should be working at a job that does not require reading or writing. [​IMG]

    Me on the phone with the DSL customer service at 1:30am.

    Him: I'm checking to see if any outages have been reported for your area.
    ME: ok
    Him: We have one in Dallas, TX....is Texas close to Arkansas???
    Me: Well, yeah, it's the next state over, but Dallas is 250 miles from here.

    I about died laughing.

    Quote:Funny thing was I was pleasently impressed that it sounded like he spoke English as a first language - here I was thinking I might have gotten someone in the US and then he says that! (heck, maybe he was American- you know how kids don't learn any geography these days)
