..Or the woman from England that thought the way I said "Route" ..was "funny" (like ..odd...)....remember her? She said she was "Sarah..with an 'H' .." ??
And I said, "well that's odd.... Over here we spell Sarah with an 'S'.." ?
Well, here's a new one. Spoke with a lovely man in the UK who had the most loveliest of accents..
We spoke about the time difference and "when you colonists are sleeping, we here in the UK are working..and visa versa"
"Colonists"! Isn't that cute!! I don't think I've ever been called a 'colonist' before..a lot of other names maybe, but never a "Colonist"...sound so refined...soooo English...!!
Anyway, after we discussed his DNA and all that represented and I sound all, like a brain-e-ack and all..we said "Cheerio!" ... well, not that exact word.. more like "OK then, well, Good-bye"
Didn't think too much about it except the fact that I had actually dialed a phone and spoke to someone across the OCEAN..!!
How flippen' cool is that?? In ENGLAND..
I was "ringing him up"...in ENGLAND- for cracker's sakes!
OK, so then this morning, I open my email and there's an email from him. Seems he's "fallen in love with your voice" and "most American's I speak to are loud and harsh, but your voice sounded sweet and soft...."
Wha?? Me? Are you nuts??
Oh, I must have been using my "you're -speaking-to-someone-in-friggin-England (!!) -be-nice" phone voice...
Then, are you ready for this.....he asked if I'd send a..........photo!!
Oh no you di-ent just say that....
Good thing I was reading this and NOT speaking to him on the phone..I was already stammering
and being nervous..a photo?...are you nuts?? a photo? of me?? whatthehell??
But, being I was always trained to give excellent customer service ...and against my better judgement...I agreed. Told him this was "before my first cup of coffee.."
He did write back.....said we were "look-alikes"...now I'm really scared.
Ah well, I really DID like this job......
-me (I'm just messing with you - my boss loved it!)
