I hope this is vague enough that it won’t get me Dooced

The best part of the day was answering the telephone and asking politely “may I ask whose calling?” before transferring the phone call to its intended recipient.

Because after that, everything went downhill.

Caller says, snidely, “yes, you may.”

And I’m sure that he was irritated that I understood what he was getting at right away and countered with “whose calling, please?” before he could call me out on what is apparently a pet peeve of his.

I truly loved getting bitched out about it later because he is apparently an anal, crazy, intolerant man who is, unfortunately, leaps and bounds more important and more powerful than I will ever be.

Jerk deserved it. I don't care how much money you make, there is no reason to be disrespectful
