At my store, if a phone call comes in outside of business hours, we answer as "Staples Security" rather than the usual bs greeting.

At 7:30AM today, the phone rang. We open at 8AM.

Me *gruffly*: Staples security.

SC: Can I have the printing department please?

Me: We're closed sir.

SC: Well can I talk to someone in the printing department?

Me: We're CLOSED. We don't open for another 30 minutes, and there's no one IN the printing department yet!!

SC: Should I call back later then?

Me: Yes.

SC: Oh....uh....well....ok.

Me: *click*

I love not having to be courteous on the phone. :devil:
