A Funny Little Phonecall
Bank Customer Service Rep: Thank you for calling the _____ Bank business line, this is Charlene, how can I help you today?"
Me: (Giggles) I'm sorry I laughed, you see I have a cat named "Charlene".
Charlene: A cat named Charlene? Now isn't that funny??!!
Me: Her full name is Charlene Butterbean.
Charlene: Is she fat?
Me: We don't tell her she is. We like to say she's "floofy".
Charlene: Well, I'm floofy too! And we both giggled for a good minute and then went on to talk about actual banking stuff.
After I got off the phone, I shared the story with Charlene Butterbean, who did not seem to see the humor in the situation. I'm still chuckling, though, and I bet the other Charlene is, too.
