I also sat next to him at a Rolling Stones concert



So I'm having some furniture delivered tomorrow and the furniture store calls to confirm delivery times and stuff.

::ringring::

ME: "Hello?"

ELIOT: "Hello! This is Eliot from Jordan's Furniture!"

ME: "Hi Eliot! How are you?"

ELIOT: "I'd love to talk to you in person but unfortunately I can only do this recording."

ME: "So how are you?"

ELIOT: "To make your delivery experience as postive as possible make sure you leave a clear path to where you want your furniture set up."

ME: "Okay."

ME: "Eliot?"

ME: "Eliot??"

ME: ELIOTTT????"

ME: "I'm talking to a recording. And myself."

ELIOT: "Thank you for choosing Jordan's Furniture and have a great day!"

ME: "Thank you, Eliot!"

Sometimes they record the 'real person' side of those conversations to play back at Christmas parties.

(I enjoy answering those pre-recorded messages with a list of what I'm having for supper and stuff...I like to think it messes 'em up. It probably doesn't.)

Took the liberty of picking out your next purchase...it's quite fabulous. I have a set just like this at my house.

Still probably not Hoagy said...

Or this one...and get a matching one for me so we can lounge together in our silk dressing gowns after dinner.

Okay, I'm done. said...

No, wait! Perfect!
