I work for a security company calling on alarms. The best part of this job is that I’m allowed to be as sassy as I want. Like this call that came in a few hours ago. Here’s a snippet of it. By this point I had already delivered my opening, letting him know where the alarm is coming from.
Me (M) = Me
Dude (D) = Owner of the house with an alarm going off
Dude: “So can you disarm the system?”
Me: “I’m sorry, sir. I do not have the ability to do so.”
Dude: (In a demeaning tone) “Well what /can/ you do then?”
Me:”Well, sir I can get that password from you so that I don’t have to call the police.”
Me: “It’s a four letter word, sir.”
