on good attitude …

Today is my birthday!!!  It was a happy day and I had a really good attitude.  Yay!

I received some attitude, though.  My phone rang and the caller was looking for someone who works in another department.  Our conversation went like this,

Me: Good afternoon, library.

Caller: May I speak to ___?

Me:  I'm sorry this isn't her line, would you like her extension?

Caller:  Is she there?

Me:  Um … I'm sorry she's not, this isn't her extension. (I meant that she wasn't in my office … Obviously as you will see the caller was asking if she was present on campus so … my bad, I guess …)

Caller (very agitated):  Is she there?

Me: No, but I can give you the number where she can be reached.

Caller (BIG ATTITUDE COMING ON): I DIDN'T AX YOU FOR HER EXTENSION!!!  I AXED YOU IF SHE WAS IN SCHOOL!!!  Can you transfer me?

Me:  Certainly.  Hold on just a moment.


CLICK!!!

Um, yeah lady … I fucking hung up on you!!!  Even if I misunderstood your question, speaking to me with that attitude and that tone will get you successfully transferred to the line that you want exactly 0% of the time.  I am THAT spiteful!!!  BWAHAHAHAHA!!!  

And you know what else?  My boss was standing right next to me and she didn't know I hung up on you because I was so polite while you were on the line …. BWAHAHHAHA!!!

I've heard it said that being passive-aggressive doesn't do anybody any good. I think that, that is wrong.  It makes me feel much better … So as Martha says, "It's a good thing."
