Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?

Sometimes I love my job

phone rings

Me: "This is Eric, can I help you?"

The Guy On The Phone: "Can I talk to the guy in the back who orders the maintenance supplies?"

Me: "Can you tell me who you talked to?"

TGOTP: "I can't remember his name, he's in the back."

This went on, with several variations for about a minute. He finally surrendered a name, this being Steve. There is no Steve here.

Me: "You're just fishing aren't you?

TGOTP: "No I'm not, and you're not getting my business" At least I think he said business, he was already hanging up the phone. I love these guys. They always brighten my day. If they are a Toner Phoner, I generally tell them to call the corporate office and give them the National Toner Fraud Hotline.
