Now, since I have been living and working in this beautiful country, I have had to learn that things here in the ‘rural’ and often ‘backwards’ part of the country… anyway, they seem to baffle my little head sometimes. Whether its a tradition, or ‘thats the way we do it’ or whatever, sometimes I am completely surprised at how things are done. And, I shouldnt be… I should just learn to accept this things.. but sometimes they are so different from what I am use to that it just sideswipes me.
Answering the phone this morning at work and Mr Man asks to speak to one of the idiots, who we will call PA (also known as PissAnt).
I put Mr Man on hold and go tell PissAnt,that the phone is for them. “PissAnt, Mr Man from Company X is on the phone for you”
PissAnt goes to the phone, and Im not sure what happens next but tells me ‘hes not there anymore’
To which I reply: “well, it was Mr Man from Company X”
AND… I was met with the most stupid, dumbfounded look possible… you know the look of deer in the head lights.. blinded by the thought or suggestion … stuck on stupid… mesmerised... it was there
My thinking was this: Call Mr Man back.
PissAnt’s thinking: What? Thought? Where? Who? Me? Oh, what am I doing here?
So, needless to say Mr Man has called back 3 times to speak to PissAnt.. who somehow cant figure out how to use the phone.
In ANY business I have worked, if someone rang for me and I had their details, I would ring them back… to solve whatever the call is about.
Not this particular PissAnt.
