Work Arama ::Cell Phones vs. Home Phones::

Sometimes its just too funny what I do at work.  I had to call a bunch of people (mainly guys) and tell them about the courses they were going to be taking.

So here are two situations I found myself constantly in.

Situation 1:

I call up a home phone and a lady answers.  I’m guessing this is either the guy I’m trying to get a hold of’s mother, sister or wife:

me: Hi, is Ahmed there?

woman: No, whose speaking (gets all hostile and suspicious)

me:I’m kloude from the….

woman: What do you want from him? (still not convinced and even more hostile)

me: I just wanted to inform him that his classes start on the tenth of this month.  Does he have a cell number I can reach him through?

woman: He’s out.  I’ll let him know.

Then the line goes dead. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeep

me: *shrugs*

Situation 2:

I call the cell number given and get straight to the person I’m looking for.

me: Hi Ahmed?

guy:Yeah!? (arabic: marhabtain! keefik? Kul am wa anti bi khair!) *sounding hopeful*

me:I’m from the American Esl Center. I would like to inform you…*rolls eyes*

guy:oh ok… *sighs-hope is lost*

Now I have to say this is just way too lame.  Utterly and beyond lame.
