Occupation (if it pertains to the annoying calls...): Receptionist
Any pet-peeves (about calls...): Life stories, that is callers who insist on giving me every single bit of information that they can think of, that has nothing to do with why they called and does not help me direct there call in the least little bit.
I'll also include an annoying called I recieved yesterday.
Me "********* and ****** Ford, how can I help you?"
Man "Ummm, yes I have been recieving credit cards for a person by the name of Carmen *********"
Man "Well, I was wondering if that person had anything to do with your business"
Me, after smashing my head into the switchboard "No sir, we don't have anyone by that name who works here."
Man "Ok, so you're sure"
Me, witholding the urge to say, 'Just kidding, that's me, and what the hell are you doing with my credit cards???' (sarcasim, btw) "No sir, we don't have anyone here by that name, is there anything else I can help you with?"
Then he just hung up. No "that's all I needed, thank you, bye-bye", he just hung up. Rude people suck.
Well, now we have our first post. :)
