So living where I work is mostly a great thing but one of the things not so great about living in my building is that my business phone rings in my house. Everyone I know knows this but customers don't always think about things like this and why would they? I know I have called a business before to find out their hours.
Mostly when people call and I answer they are surprised but we work it out and if I can't help them with something because I am making supper and can't get to the shop I just tell them to call back. On occasion however it is strange. Like once the phone rang at about 11:30 which always freaks me out and I woke up an answered it thinking something happened to someone. Nope. Just a drunk lady who wanted to chat about my store and what I have and then got angry when I asked her to call back the next day. Not just angry but mean saying things like well if you won't tell me what you have in your store I guess I'll never go there. I did calm her down and needless to say I am quite certain she never did visit Persimmons.
Well this morning at 5:15...yea 5:15 someone called. We didn't get out of bed in time to answer before the machine picked up so the guy left a message. The message was for Joyce and he was thanking her for helping him out but he is having some issues right now and can't pay her back. Ok you are calling Joyce at 5:15 to tell her that? By the way I am Kim not Joyce.
