Why do I bother saying it at all, it's not like they listen...

Good morning, company name here, how can I help you?
Yes, I have an appointment I have to cancel.
Who is your appointment with, sir?
Dr. So and So.
Sir, you've got the wrong number, this is company name here.
Oh...what is Dr. So and So's number?
I have no idea, sir.

Good morning, company name here, how can I help you?
I'd like to make an appointment.
Is there a particular house you are interested in?
I'd like to make an appointment.
Hello?
I'd like to make an appointment with Dr. So and So.
You've got the wrong number, this is company name here.
Oh. Well what did I dial?
You dialed 555-5555.
Yeah, that's Dr. So and So's number.
No that's our number.
Yeah, and I'd like to make an appointment...

Good morning, company name here, how can I help you?
Yeah, I was supposed to meet you at eleven.
Who did you have an appointment with?
Oh, I don't know her name, I just know I was supposed to meet her at eleven.
Where was your appointment, maybe I can find out who you had an appointment with.
At my house.
Are you selling your home?
Oh, wait, is this the carpet cleaning place?

I think you should go ahead and schedule the appt with Dr. Soandso, as well as maybe a preliminary luncheon. Make sure to ask if it's regarding the burning when they pee or if it's a sexual dysfunction appointment.

We apparently have the phone number that used to belong to a very elderly woman. When we first got the number and her friends learned that the number was no longer hers, they used to ask us if we knew her new number!!!
