Re: Useless Facts- Cable Operators
I had (almost) the same experience. I once called 411 for the #s of 3 people. I told the guy that I had three numbers, and he answered back (quite rudely, BTW. I know I was wrong, but SHEESH!), "Don't you mean three names?" "Uh, yeah." I needed the number for Sarah Levinson. "May I please have the number of Sarah Le-" "Last name, please." "I was just about to tell you." "Well, say the last name first. It makes my job a whole lot easier." Wanna know what would make it a whole lot easier? If he were fired. "Levinson." "First name?" "I told you that already." "First name?" "I don't want to repeat myself." "First name?" "Sarah."
Then he gave me the number. And he didn't even bother waiting for the other two. Not that I was angry; the lady I called after was much nicer.
And besides, most people look at this type of topic unrealistically. They are all under the apparent misconception tha--oh, wait. Is my post over? Ah, okay.
