A few weeks ago, after over four years, I finally left my call center job at a pet insurance company. The company is wonderful, my coworkers even more so, but being a call center I had my share of angry, crazy, and/or dumb people. Luckily this is one of the funny dumb ones from a couple years ago.
(M = me, O = oblivious)
M: Thank you for calling Company this is Me.
O: Hi I’m signing up online and it’s asking for my dog’s date of birth, but I don’t know it.
M: That’s fine! Do you know about how old they are?
O: Yes, he’s 3.
M: Great, you can just choose any date of birth that would make him 3 years old.
O: … I don’t know how to do that. I heard human years are different from dog years.
M: laughs then realizes she’s serious You can just choose any date in 2012.
O: Are you sure? But that’s human years.
M: Yes, I’m sure.
O: I don’t know… hangs up
Sometimes I don’t know how these people manage to make it to adulthood.
