Sweet Revenge, or Obviously I Need To Get A Life

A couple of minutes ago I answered the phone at work. Guess who it was?!

"Is JJ in?"

"May I ask who's calling?"

"Eric Anderson with Sterling."

"Can you hold for a minute please?"

I push hold........................Smile an evil smile, and immediately start drafting this post about him. You may remember his rudeness from yesterday.

He lasted on hold for two and a half minutes before he hung up.

You shouldn't have messed with me yesterday, Eric. You will NEVER get through to JJ now. Muahahahahahahaha! (Echoing evil laughter fading into silence)

Yay! NEVER put him through. Ever. What an ass. Can you control the music while he's on hold? Disco. Or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Cele said...

Expounding on Rebecca's musical about Frank Zappa's Bob Was A Mountain 27 excruciating minutes...well if he last through it all. But of course the FCC could get a bit pissed.

I do think after a week or five of this treatment to JJ, you should prepare your boss to take the JJ call and then send JJ back to you. Of course after the prerequist time on hold. :)

Worse, he has to listen to obnoxious beeping that my phone has, no music, just grate-on-your-nerves beeping.

Perfect revenge!

I love it! I dream of days like this. What a total ass. He got what he deserved!

Jazzy said...

Good for you! He probably deserved worse than he got. Way to go!

Rebecca said...

Hey! Cele is BRILLIANT! Can you do that - get your boss to take the call and refer him back to you? That would be the BEST. And then totally talk down to him and treat him like the moron that he is. *sigh* All this after I JUST got finished telling Sparkle (my nanny kid) that she shouldn't judge the whole of a person based on one aspect. I am a hypocrite. But do it anyway!

I'm thinking a boatload of Ghiradelli chocolate, a day at the spa, or a Napa valley wine basket would be starters for him to make amends.

After the gift is enjoyed, I'd still put him on hold. Jethro Tull's "Aqualung" might be a good musical option. "American Pie" is another. The long disco version of "No More Tears." The Mormon Tabernacle Choir music always reminds me of funerals - they seem as energetic as corpses.

I must be feeling better. I'm snarky.

You're doing humanity a favour. Someday, when on hold for the fourteenth time, the pricks will suddenly wake up and see the error of their ways.

Naa, not likely... But let'em have it anyway!

You are sooo smart(oh, and evil)!! I would have told him to take his ink cartridge and shove it up his...---but I've never been known for being subtle!
