A couple weeks ago I posted about a wonderful wise-ass answer I got from one of the offices. Someone called asking about a delivery, I asked her where she was, and with this wonderful smile in her voice she said "I'm at my desk".
I spoke to her evil twin today.
Me: Where are you?
Her: I'm here
Me: No, where are you?
Her: I'M HERE (now sounding confused, real confused, like she just didn't get the question)
Me: What city?
Her: (city name withhead to protect the guilty)
I love my job ... I really do
