Anti Joke

By Anonymous - 14/02/2014 21:39 - United States - Daytona Beach

Today, a guy called customer support, claiming his internet wasn't working. I asked for his customer details, and he gave his name as Mike Hunt. I recognized the old joke, called him an idiot, and hung up on him. It turned out that was his real name. I'm now on suspension. FML

He should know better than to use his regular name?

im pretty sure its fraud not to use his real name!!! ... and I know a guy named mike hunt too

Maybe his name isn't Michael, maybe it really is Mike?

If that were my name I would always say Michael Hunt. Even if my real name was just Mike.

Show it anyway

Wow that sucks i guess you should expect the unexpected

That's what customer service deals with.. It's your job to help people, not call them an idiot.

20: how would that have helped?

Because he would have said his name was Morgan Freeman . That's the joke #45

Thank you @47 for explaining things. You are gorgeous by the way. And I say that in my real self not as Morgan Freeman.

I caught that. -_- I just don't see how having introduced himself as Morgan Freeman would've helped his situation (inb4 "but Morgan Freeman makes everything awesome!")

I've been there. Even though you may encounter a prankster or two as a CSR, you must never assume anything. You just never know. Losing your job isn't worth letting some pea brain with nothing better to do get a laugh at your expense.

It was just an inconvenient misunderstanding; let's learn to not assume.

I'm really sorry. What parents would name their child Michael Hunt? It's an old joke, so I can understand why you didn't quite believe him, but really, never make assumptions.

Where i work an announcement went off with what sounded like "will a loosy goosey please meet their party at ...." My friend and i almost lost it, youd be surprised what people name their kids, when i was younger there were siblings named Diamond,Princess and Precious. My friend met someone in university with a name spelt Le-a which is said Ledasha......again i lost it.

I actually knew a Michael Hunt. Got angry when we called him Mike. Never understood why he didn't just go by his first name instead. Odd fellow.

It sounds like 'my ****' if you say it quickly enough.

It's a little FYL and YDI because yeah it's a common joke and you didn't think he was serious, but yet again it's work, and you should take calls at work seriously.
