Rich guy, “So I’ve got loads of cash, correct?”

As you all know, I work at a bank. I truly hate my call center job and am looking to break free once I have enough savings….but some of the people I encounter really blow my mind.

Here is my retelling of a call I got from a cocky young man.

Me: Hi thanks for calling __________ bank. My name is _____, how can I help you?

Cocky Caller: Yes. I assume you are doing splendid my dear. Would you mind reading my account balances to me? I’ve struck a cold and cannot foresee opening the mobile application.

Me: this is a very common request but it still bugs me that I have to read people their fucking balances when they have a million other ways of knowing it that don’t involve me Of course, I’d be happy to read your account balances today.

Cocky Caller: Splendid.

Me: Let me place you through a brief security first. What is your date of birth, etc. Etc.

caller passed security, now I start reading him his balances

Me: eyes popping slightly Your available checking account balance is $547,284.48.

Cocky Caller: Ooh, I like the sound of that number! Mind reading it again?

Me: Yes, sir. Your checking balance is $547,284.48.

Cocky Caller: Ooooh. exhales

Me: getting weirded out ….and your savings account balance is —

Cocky Caller: interrupting NO can you please repeat my checking balance, good sir? I want to hear the number again.

Me: annoyed AF. Speaking deliberately and slowly like I was talking to a dumb person. You have F I V E hundred THOUSAND two hundred E I G H T Y f o u r dollars AND F O R T Y E I G H T cents.

Cocky Caller: silent, exhaling calmly very well. that’s a lot of money, isn’t it?

Me: Sure!

Cocky Caller: I bet you’ve never seen a balance like that, before sir.

Me: ……Probably not, I don’t know.

Cocky Caller: I’m certainly the wealthiest you’ve talked to all day. Aren’t you curious as to how I got to be so wealthy?

Me: That’s great sir. Sadly there are many calls waiting so I cannot really stray off topic too much. Is there anything else I could help you with?

Cocky Caller: Oh, don’t be so shy. You’re simply jealous of me, it’s fine, I get that a lot. I’m going to tell you anyway.

Me: extremely irritated

Cocky Caller: First, it is called investing early. I was 22 and started literally bla bla bla a bunch of jargon for two minutes on how he is so fucking rich from real estate and stocks*

Me: That’s fantastic. Anything else I can help you with today sir?

Cocky Caller: I bet you’ve never seen money like mine. You can’t act so casual when you see a number that large . In a LIQUID checking account. You would gasp at what I have tied up in investments.

Me: Sir, congratulations on your money. Truly. But it is not my job to have an opinion.

Cocky Caller: Well lets not pretend you DO have an opinion on what you see. Everyone does.

Me: Sir it was nice speaking to you but I’m going to disconnect if there is nothing else I can help you with.

Cocky Caller: Sir, mind reading me my checking account balance? Oh gosh, I seemed to have forgotten to write it down!

Me: disconnects

And that Caller remains one of the most creepy, cocky, and entitled pieces of shit that I’ve had the bad luck of speaking to.

TL;DR cocky guy asking me to stroke his ego was shut down when I wouldn’t act excited over his $$$
