Tactless Tina

Sometimes, somedays I have little patience. There are certain people I tolerate with a deep sigh. There is this dude at work that calls me ALL THE TIME. It's not a real problem that he calls I guess, it's that it takes a really long time to get thru a conversation with him. Seriously, you can listen to the first minute, put the phone down for the next 20, pick it back up occasionally mmm hmming and you wouldn't have missed a thing. I swear!

So today I had to leave him a message and this is what it said.

"Hi, it's Tina. I have a customer that would like to schedule the work and I need the details of the job. Please call me at 1-800-XXX-XXXX. But you already know that number because you call me all the time."

That last part slipped out. I meant it, but I didn't mean for him to hear it. Oh Lord, when will I learn to count to ten before I utter such things.

At least the boys in the office thought it was funny.

I was going to guess who that was, but you never know who could happen upon your blog. His wife is on facebook and you have this linked to your facebook...
I know someone else like that. HIS initials are S.L. (and I don't think he or his wife or SIX KIDS would happen upon your blog.) ;)

Too funny. I have someone like that at my job too. I finally asked him to email me on things because I don't have the time to talk to him on the phone!! Maybe he'll take a hint from your message!!

LMAO, hopefully he doesn't hear the irritation that I added when I read it ;). Maybe he will get a clue though. Hopefully!

OMG - can I steal that line!! I too, have zero tolerance for people who waste my time with pointless garbage......why is it that some people have to take the "long way to grandma's house" for every damn thing??? I mean come on - get to the point buddy or start a blog - that's what I did!!

I don't care what anyone thinks - even without tact - you're freaking hilarious!!
