64 Minutes and Still Couldn’t Solve it 🤮

We all have *those* calls.

You know the ones.

Today I got 2 calls from the same person — a sales agent who was stuck in the hospital with an amputated arm. At approximately 3 pm she called to tell me her password wasn’t working. “They changed it earlier today but it didn’t work.”

Already I could tell I was going to hate this. Normally when I get a password call, we change it, give it to the agent, and everything is good. It’s that 1% of the time it doesn’t work that I dread…and this is one of those 1%.

I get her a new password. She keeps misheard me, which gets me frustrated. I keep repeating myself but she doesn’t get it. I offer to email the password to her but she declined, and said she’d try another call center agent — which I have no problem with. So she hangs up.

I should point out that my threshold for nonsense is very low, so I’m already irritated.

Well, at 3:30 or so, I get another call, and what do you know — it’s her. *Headdesk*

I tell her to restart her iPad. Doesn’t work. I get her a new password. Doesn’t work. I ask what version of ios she is using, and it’s up to date. I ask her what version of the program she is using but neither of us knows how to check.

Finally, I put her on hold to ask my colleagues. Several minutes later someone says to empty her browser history.

I tell the agent, “Lady, empty your browser history.” She doesn’t know how, so we have to ask a hospital nurse to help her out.

After restarting the iPad one more time, we load up the program and IT WORKS!!!! Except no it doesn’t 🤦‍♂️

I tell the agent that tech support has already logged out, so there is nothing more we can do. 64 minutes after she called again, I was finally free of her…with nothing to show for it.

I utterly despise tech calls. JUST WORK THE WAY YOURE SUPPOSED TO!!!!!!!

What do you think?

What are the most bizarre calls you’ve ever had?

…why did you even ask for it?
