Here’s what happened:
It was a normal everyday Thursday at the Shack of Radios until I got a call:
Caveman: Hello, Radio Shack Lewiston. This is Matt, how can I help you?
Phone Call: Hi! I’d like to place an order.
C: Oh, ummm can you hold a second.
I look around the store to find someone who’s been there longer than I have, because I never was told how to fill an order. Luckly “A” walks by, and I ask him (“A” would know what to do the most out of the three of us who were currently working).
C: This guy whats to “place an order”. What should I do?
A: Well…ask him what he wants.
I pick the phone back up.
C: Ok sir, What exactly do you need?
PC: I would like 2 peperoni pizzas and some cheese sticks.
When I was hired I heard about prank calls, and how some stores always try to pull a fast one on the new guy. As I try to process what was going on I realize the man on the phone sounded alot like “M”, whose been in the backroom since I’ve been on the phone.
C: “M” you’re are a jerk, but funny none the less.
PC: Excuse me sir, I just wanna order some pizza.
Me now thinking I’ve got to cover my ass, because it’s not “M”.
C: Sir this is Radio Shack.
PC: Oh, I’m so sorry. I just wanted a pizza, you didn’t have to call me a jerk.
C: (panicking) It’s ok sir. Have a good day.
