So was in a really quiet spell at work today, browsing geekzone to see what was happening.
Then a call came through, so I answered it as I should a said:
"Welcome to geekzone, you're speaking with Suzanne"

So Mauricio, need a receptionist at all?

And again... ugh... work should not be allowed when you're so tired you try to claim working for geekzone rather than your real company

LOL... oh thats funny, nice one... : )

Speaking of funny work stories, anyone familiar with those staplers or pens that give you a shock when you try to use them? A girl my team at the time was talking to a customer on the phone when she went to pick up one of those pens that had been "left" on her desk.

Apparently the customer thought she had just been stabbed or something when she suddenly shrieked in his ear. The wild eyed look on her face was absolutely priceless. Luckily she saw the funny side of it.....eventually.

BWAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHHA

Oh Pebbles, thats too funny.

I often find myself answering my home phone with "Good afternoon, Tony speaking" in a professional tone. It just seems 'wrong' to pick up and say "Hi" given that 99% of my phone calls over the last few years have been from business customers.

I have a phone line in my office at home, th rest of the family has a big office together but I have an office in a seperate room, which is twice the size of my bedroom, and I alwas tend to awnswer the phone, Goodafternoon Riley speaking, How can I help you? automatically. *sigh* the wonder of phones when your not thinking straight. and usually it is mum asking me to come up to have dinner, or someone wanting me to be somewhere lol.
