Pet Peeve

I have been noticing a lot of morons calling lately to the shop. OK they may not be morons but the phone skills they posses suck ass:

Me: "Hello, Revolution Cycle and Ski."

Customer: "Who's this?"

Me: "The fucking boogie man, who do you think it is?"

No I don't really say it but is annoys the hell out of me. Try something like, "with whom am I speaking?". I also really love it (insert sarcasm) when a customer calls and does the following:

Me: "Hello, Revolution Cycle and Ski."

Customer: "Is this Mike?"

Me: "No this is Ben, would you like to speak to Mike?"

Customer: "No"

Me: "Are you fucking stupid?"

Stearns county and the have to love it. You may think I could alleviate most of this by stating who I am when I answer the phone, but that would be giving in. These people have to learn. I will not give up. I sometimes mess with them and they get so's a good time.

Another pet peeve of mine is when a customer asks me if a certain saddle is comfortable, will it fit them, and/or will alleviate the pain they are having in the "soft tissue area"?
Mmmm...soft tissue area, excuse me while I go puke.

Let's see, can you bend over so I can take a closer look at your ass? Or better yet, I love when they grab the saddle, shove it between their legs, and do a little dance like they are trying to remove their underwear from their ass crack. Yep, this feels good, I'll take. Are you fucking kidding me?!
I don't know, maybe it is just me. I have never had a saddle that I could not get used to. Alright, there was one but I didn't give it a chance because I like to spend money and wanted a new saddle. I think it's great when men have to tell how there junk goes to sleep and that it's the end of the world and apparently their manhood. Shit, I've been on rides where I physically have to check if I still have a penis because I can't feel shit down there. I have two kids, so the swimmers aren't taking the short bus. Macho men are morons, probably the same ones calling me with shit manners too.

Thanks for letting me vent.

1. You need to get a phone where people can hear you, we have a hard time deciphering to whom we are speaking to as when you answer the phone it sounds like a mouse in a pop can in china eating tofu.
2. I won't ask you about my seat... but I was eying up a nice sheep wool cover down in Florida on a guy's three wheeler and I wanted to ask you about it but was too intimidated as I worried what you'd say about it on your blog.

The quality, or lack there of, of our phones does not matter. At ONAG the same thing happened, on both accounts.

You clearly need to hire a receptionist. I think one that mind Josh sexually harrassing her all day would be a good idea.

Sometimes I call and just breathe into the phone. That's OK, right? Shawn
