Default The phone call that dosen't end...

So today I get a phone call....
(refreneces to other people by Sc are others in the room that she is in at home)

Me: Opening....
SC: I would like to order a cake. You see, I talked to, um, honey, who did i talk to, ...., yes Mr. <GM> and he said that since we submitted a letter requesting a donation he would give us a discount.
Me; I have not received any official notification of the discount. Do you want me to check with the MOD?
SC: Please.
Me: OK. Please hold. *I check w/MOD and yes we are giving a discount, though he doesn't know the amount off the top of his head.*
Me: *to SC* I checked, and the manager on duty, Mr. <MOD>, and he said you would get a discount but he did not know the exact amount.
SC: Ok. I would like to order a 1/4 sheet cake.
Me: *pulls out order book, and fills in proper field* Ok, do you want that in....
SC: Honey, do you think I should get a 1/4 sheet or a bigger cake. Actually I will get a 1/2 sheet.
Me: Ok, a half sheet it is. *changes order*

well, it went like this for every option I asked, flavor, frosting, decoration, etc.

About 8 min. later I finally get off the phone. 15 minutes later, the phone rings.

Me: opening
SC: Hi, I called earlier about a cake and Ihave a question.
Me: Ok. *look at at order*
SC: what flavor did I order
Me: yellow
SC: Ok. Honey, is yellow OK? ..... Yellow will be fine.
Me: Ok, will that be all?
SC: Yes.
Me: Ok. Bye.

About five minutes later SC calls again to ask a silimar question to call to, only to reference others in the room, never changed anything. I even re-read the order to her to confirm.

About 15 minutes later, SC calls, repeat phone call two and three with a different item.

About 30 min. later SC calls. Now she changes the order. The simple process to change what she wanted written takes her about 5 minutes to communicate.

Repeat several times, changing each item at least once.

On the last call I took from SC before I left we go thru the whole ask everyone in the room what they want to change, again. I get this gem, before she hangs up

SC: *in the most serious tone she could get* I know you have nothing better to do so this hasn't bothered you. *CLICK*

No, really, I have spent AT LEAST a half hour in the phone with you repeating the same stuff over while you ask everyone around you what they think. No that doesn't bother me at all. Now at I have to rush to finish everything I need to do. Thanks.

and he continued calling me to change cakes all the more,

So whats the excuse that you and RW give? *ducks and runs*

I agree, that was fairly funny. Why is it that people can't do the thing that makes sense and figure out what they want before they call. Oh wait....

Even if there was nothing else to do, I don't think anyone wants to spend a 1/2 hour on the phone with a fickle idiot. Just for that last sentence, I'd give her a "What a bitch."

In a perfect world you could call her back and tell her that your hourly wage and overtime resulting from the call would be added to her bill.
