In the night I heard this strange noise. It was ice pellets falling down on fresh snow. Now it looks to be snowing again. I will not be going out past the mail box on my porch, and that is treacherous enough.
I wrote about customer service last week. Well, here is a funny Abi story.
Yesterday afternoon, I was calling my dental insurance carrier. I had just punched in the number, and then of course got the voice recording. After punching in the account number, the recorded woman’s voice started asking questions.
On the first one, Abi, who has sort of an asthmatic cough at times, started hacking/coughing (what I call it. ) It kind of sounds like “h-a-w-w-k-k.” The recording heard this before I had a chance to say anything. The voice said: “I’m sorry. I did not understand. Please try again.”
So I tried again. When the voice asked the question, Abi, right on cue it seemed, went “h-a-w-w-k-k.” And again the recording said: “I’m sorry. I did not understand. Please try again.”
By this time it was funny. I hung up and waited until she was done with her coughing fit, and called again.
You know, sometimes you just could not make up the stories that happen in your day to day life.
