This isn’t a dating post, but it pretty much sums up the weirdness that seems to flock to me.
I just had the weirdest help desk/tech support call.
I called in because I’m having problems with something that was supposed to have been fixed by now. So I’m talking to the lady and I hear her cell phone ringing. She goes, “Oh my god, I’m so sorry, I have to take this, I think it might be my other job, can you hold on for a second?” I said, “Sure, why not” (but ONLY because she was being really nice).
So I wait.
She comes back on and says “Okay, um… uhhh where were we?”
So I tell her & she says, “I’m sorry I’m so scatter-brained. That was the fire department, they were calling to tell me my house was on fire.”
I said “WHAT?!?!?”
She says, “yeah. And I’m worried because I have 3 cats.”
I said, “You can let me go, that’s fine.”
She said, “No, no. they told me it wasn’t serious, so its okay.”
Me, “ummmmmmmmm ok.”
So she keeps working on my problem, then her phone rings again. She says, “Oh my gosh, hold on.”
So I wait.
She comes back on and says, “Okay, that was them again, they told me they had to force open my door to get in there cause the fire’s getting bigger.”
Me: “Okay, well we can finish this some other time.”
Her: “No, that’s okay, We can do this quick and then I will go.”
This entire time she’s sounding a little frantic…
So she keeps working, meanwhile, I am kinda freaking out.
Her phone rings again. “Let me answer this.”
So I wait.
She comes back on and says, “Okay, we’re almost done, which is good, because I need to get over there.”
I said, “Okay, so uh… what happened?”
Her: “Well it started in the unit below me I guess, and now its in mine. I am supposed to work from home tomorrow, I don’t know how that’s going to work. I need to find out about my cats.”
She finishes up and says, “Is there anything else I can help you with?”
I said: “NO! Now go home and check on your cats!!”
She says: “I will in a second, I have to finish training this guy on something. Oh my….”
And then we said our goodbyes.
OMG WOMAN GET OFF THE PHONE YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE
