We'll Call Her Mrs. Stupid

If you read my sister's blog, then you are aware that she laughs at inappropriate times. This is actually something that I was blessed with, also.

The last four weeks have been filled with training to be a customer service representative for me. Yes, I am going to be talking to people on the phone, explaining bills, and taking payments. This is what happened today while I was on the phone during training:

Me: "Good afternoon. Customer service. This is Lisa."

Customer: "I got a disconnect notice in the mail. My balance is $498.63. If I pay $20.00, would that stop the disconnect?"

Me: "What's your address?"

Customer: "1045 E Main."

Me: "And your name?"

Customer: "Amanda Stupid."

Me: *snicker*

Ok, so I made up the address and the name isn't quite what hers was....but, her last name was unfortunately a synonym of stupid. If you have a $500.00 bill then it's fitting that your last name is Stupid if you want to pay $20.00 to stop a disconnect. I just hope she didn't hear me snicker. I really tried to hold it in.

I find it easier to hide my amusement over the phone. When they are sitting in front of me, my face tells all.
