Phone call to my office today:

Me: “This is Mandi ___.”
Caller: “Oh, yes, hello.” Pause.
Me: “Hello. How can I help you?”
Caller: “I want one of those Obama t-shirts you guys were handing out.”
Me: “Oh I’m sorry, I believe you have the wrong number. We do not endorse political candidates.”
Caller: “Well, that is not what this man at the bank just told me. He told me he got his t-shirt from you.”
Me: Pausing, wondering if this is a prank from my new staff members, “Well, ma’am, I apologize, but he gave you incorrect information.”
Caller: “Are you sure you don’t have the Barack Obama t-shirts? Did you run out?”
Me: “Yes, I’m sure that we don’t have them, and that we never did.”
Caller: “Well if I see another one, and they say they got it from your office, I’m going to be upset.”
Me: “Ma’am, if you hear this from another person, I’ll be just as upset. In fact, get the person’s number and I’ll call them myself.”
Caller: “Ok. Damn, I really wanted that free t-shirt. You sure?”
