Last week, my work phone rang and a girl proceeded to ask to speak to the manager, owner, or someone that could give her their money. Since I'm the gatekeeper around here, I finally got her to the point where I ask if she'd like to leave her name and number.
Wait. I really should point out that I am not a fun maker of. I was made fun of a blue-billion times growing up. Nothing about it was my fault. I was chubby (genetically) and red-headed. With dimples in all of the wrong places. And some in the right places. So, I'm really not one to laugh at someone else's misfortune or whatever. I'm not. I don't do it. Well, I didn't...until now.
And so, she said, "This is Aquanet Jones (not her real last name) and...."
Right there is where I lost my shit. I know they are used to people hanging up on them. And I did. Right there, I hung up on her.
So, I could laugh my stinkin' ass off.
What's the best name you've ever heard?
P.S. It could have been Aqua Net....because I did not have the wherewithall to ask her how to spell it. I lost it way before then.
