This one is short and sweet, but it did make me laugh.
The cast is: Me – Me A – Agent
The agent calls in to change an address for a client. Super simple, and honestly, it’s something he could do himself, but that’s a story for another day.
Me – ok sir, I’ll take the new address whenever you’re ready.
A – ok, it’s 123 Neighborhood Drive. Neighborhood is one word. Thats n e i g h b o r h o o d. That’s in Springfield, California, 12345.
Yup, he literally felt the need to spell neighborhood for me, unprompted. Meanwhile, I have a 4 year degree in communications and am a spelling whiz. He apparently assumed I’m an idiot since I’m in a call center. I couldn’t help but laugh at the irony.
The rest of the call was fine, and it wasn’t a big deal. But I’ll forever remember the agent who thinks I can’t spell the word neighborhood.
EDIT– For clarification, I’m in the US and only have clients in the US. So there is only one possible spelling. If that wasn’t the case, I would have totally understood him doing it
