I'm Just Not Myself
I answered the phone in my best business voice.
"Deb XXXXXXX Piano Service"
" Hello, this is XXX XXXXX. Deb usually tunes my piano and I'd like to schedule an appointment."
(Caller ID says the call originates in CA! Huh.)
So, do I tell her she's talking to Deb? Nah, thought I'd have some fun.
"Alright, where are you located?" asks non-deb.
"At 85 HHHHHH Avenue, in Gloucester."
(Now I realize who is calling. She maintains two homes - each coast - a no show for her last appointment.)
She continues, "I'd like to have Deb come the second week of September."
"Let me check her schedule, " says non-deb. "How would September the 9th at 11 a.m. be?"
Non-deb answers, "I've written that in her schedule book - September 9th at 11. She'll see you then."
"Thank you," says XXX XXXXX.
"Bye," says non-deb.
