He was surprised it was me. He then proceeded to tell me that (sit down, this is good!) his phone had been stolen :"You know how, when you go into the store you have your phone and your keys in your hand? Yeah. I was coming out, and they pushed past me and were gone with it! I had like - I just got my phone back! - and I had like 190 messages! And it's been a real mess! And I know I was supposed to be out there Tuesday or Wednesday (ummm...TODAY is Wednesday. Just sayin'!) and I'm trying to get organized - well, I am organized, I'm trying to get the guys together so they can come fix it."
I made the appropriate noises: "Oh, no!" "Wow!" and "Yeah, I bet!"...then said "Well, you SAID you'd be out yesterday or today, and SG took OFF WORK so he could be here to discuss the things with you" "-He's Home!???? Oh....." "Yes. He's home. And we need to get this done - and oh, by the way, our daughter's birthday is coming up, and she ALWAYS has a swim party, and with her Asperger's you HAVE to keep the routines or else things are bad." :crickets chirping: "Oh. Yes Ma'am - and I want to get this done! Let me....let me call you back later, OK? I need - I'll call you back!"
:snicker: and :sigh:
Let's see......ignoring the whole "stolen phone" thing - because it's possible, not probable, but possible - why were the guys not already set up? HE's the one that set Tuesday or Wednesday as the days, not us, so.....wouldn't you have already got the guys lined up? I mean...you already know the customer is pretty pissed.....seems like you wouldn't want to piss 'em off even more. And, umm....doesn't he have access to any other phone? I mean...we have a landline. And if he doesn't, why can't he just DRIVE to one of their houses? He certainly did that a lot with Skeeter.........it makes no sense at all.
I didn't get a chance to tell him that if I get heat stroke from being in my studio with no A/C I'm going to send HIM the hospital bill.......but this is getting rather ridiculous. Really....especially the whole phone thing - he seriously expects me to believe that?????? I'm blonde, but not a dumb one!
