"Why are you calling me at work?" Why are you answering your cell at work?

I’m working a contract job part-time with a small business. Over the last few weeks I’ve been in charge of reaching out to customers to help them with their account (I.E. making sure all the info is correct, apartment #s, etc…). For the most part, everyone has been nice.

But I ran into the following gems. Each of these people were genuinely upset I had the nerve to call. Each made me wish I could respond with “Then, why are you answering your phone?!”

Customer responses:

“I’m actually in the middle of a meeting.”

“Why are you calling me? I don’t have time to talk.”

“Never call me. Text and E-mail only. Do. Not. Call. This. Number. Again. Or I will be forced to cancel my account.”

“I can’t talk right now.”

“I’m actually about to go into a doctor’s appointment. I can’t talk.”


” *Whispering* I actually just got my baby to fall asleep. Can I call you back later? Thanks.”

“I’m sorry who? Hun, that’s my mother’s account. She gave you my number. I told her to stop that. Can you call her?”

“Why do all you people work in tunnels? I swear you’re on a train.”
