A university education working overtime (cc @UofTMagazine)

October 4, 2011 § 1 Comment

Just hung up after this conversation. The time is 9:30.

Guy calling from U of T: “Hello, my name is Mohamed. May I please speak to [unrecognizable mispronunciation of what I *think* was my wife’s name]?”

Me: “No, I’m afraid she’s indisposed.”

Mo: “Oh, she’s passed away?”

Me: “…”

Mo: “…”

Me: “No, she’s not at liberty to take this call.”

Mo: “Oh she’s busy.”

Me: “That’s right.”

Mo: “Can you say when would be a good time to call to update her on the university’s latest news and initiatives?”

Me: “Try before 9:30.”

Mo: “Before 9:30?”

Me: “Yeah it’s a little late. Goodnight.”
