The Minds of Hungry People

Back again at my first job at King's Bread Inc, another amazing phone call came through.  The mind of this hungry person amazed me.  I have to say though, If I wasn't the one who answered the phone, I wouldn't have believed it.


Phone rings, "King's Bread Inc.  Weston," I answered.  Now put yourself in my shoes when hearing the response I received, "yes.  How far am I from you?"  Assuming she didn't realize what she said, I responded, "We are on 7th street and 8th avenue." (I changed the street numbers).  Again she asked me, now a little frustrated that I didn't give her a time, "yea, I know, but how far is that from where I am?"  I almost burst into laughter at this point and quickly responded, "please hold."  I put the phone on hold and started laughing.  How can I tell her how far she is if she doesn't tell me where she is?

When I finally stopped laughing, I picked up the phone and asked, "well, where are you?"  Wait, wait for the ingenious reple, "I'm at work."

Now how am I supposed to know where she works?  I'm now asking myself if she is serious.  So I asked her, "Where do you work?"  She responded, "I'm not at work, I'm on 595."  (595 is actually I-595 and runs through at leat 4 or 5 cities).  Now I am getting a little frustrated, "mam, where on 959?"  She quickly gave me the exit she was near and I responded, "you are about 10 minutes away."  Quickly responding to my answer, "ok, thank you," click...She just hung up.  Now, and well after she hung up it was duny, well i mean hilarious."
