For whatever reason wasn’t able to finish my comment above and all of a sudden it was saved, and I cannot edit. So here is part two.
As I was saying the way these telemarketing phone systems work is that they listen and wait for you (the consumer) to say something like “hello” so that they can transfer you to a live agent because they know you’re on the phone.
We both said something at the same time and we both heard what each other said.
Well I guess he didn’t like my “speak now” comment, because he told me
“fuck you, eat a bag of dicks”, And then hangs up on me!
I don’t care how upset you are ( unless you have a psychological condition and are suffering from a nervous break down) Caesar’s Palace would’ve have someone capable of saying this to the customer on the phone with their customers.
I was so taken back, at first I thought it was a friend because only a friend would say something so crass and be able to get away with it, and we make an effort to become friends with our clients. At lot of them have become, and I consider, really good friends.
Then I thought maybe it was a customer who thought I was being rude, so I sent an apology an text message to this phone number explaining how telemarketing systems work and that I’m trying enjoy my son and give him my full attention. I didn’t mean to sound short but I asked Eric to put himself in my shoes where you think it’s a telemarketer and asked him whaf but would you do?
Then I found this website and realized that the text message was a total waste of time that I was probably worried for nothing.
What a scumbag I can’t believe somebody would say that to the consumer, they really want to be able to try and sell something to.
