Today is the worst day of my life, but thank you for reminding my of one of my happiest.

On mobile apologies for formatting/spelling.

I use to work for a small call center, one of our jobs was to call clients for different dentists and try to book appointments for customers who hadn’t come for a check up for over 2 years. Dental practice will be DP

I called this one elderly gentleman (EG) and started reading my script.

Me: Hi my name is blue_peppercorn calling on behalf of DP I was….

EG: my wife just passed away this morning

Me: I’m so sorry to hear sir I…

EG: did you say you where calling from DP?

Me: yes sir

EG starts sobbing and proceeds to tell me how before it was a dental practice he met his wife outside that building 30 years ago when she dropped a loaf of bread and he went to pick it up for her.

I have tears in my eyes and listen to him tell me about how they then started going to DP years later because it reminded them of one of the happiest days of their lives.

Me: thank you so much for taking the time to tell me your story it was beautiful and condolences for your loss.

EG: thank you for reminding me of one of the happiest days of my life on one of the worst.
