nico1908: (Jackass!)
I work for a chamber of commerce in a small town in Florida and we get strange questions and rude callers all the time, but some just leave me puzzled - like the lady yesterday.

Me: "ABC Chamber of Commerce, my name is Nico1908. How may I help you?"

Lady: "Cleveland Chamber of Commerce, Tennessee."

Silence.


That was it. She didn't introduce herself, she didn't ask me anything, she just said "Cleveland Chamber of Commerce, Tennessee".

I decided to be nice to her and assume that she needed the phone number for that chamber, I even looked it up on the internet for her, but afterwards I was wondering how some people manage to get through life barely able to communicate.

I've often wondered if not introducing yourself when calling an office is an American thing. My boss does it all the time.

The Adventure Of The Hippogriff

Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy were out for a shiny Valentine's walk in the castle. As they went, Draco Malfoy rested his hand on Harry Potter's foot. It was the most romantic walk ever. But even though the day was so black, Harry Potter was filled with fragrant dread.

"Do you suppose it's happy here?" he asked sweetly.

"You sad silly," Draco Malfoy said, tickling Harry Potter with his pumpkin. "It's completely bulging."

Just then, a cocky hippogriff leapt out from behind a fireplace and licked Draco Malfoy in the nose. "Aaargh!" Draco Malfoy screamed.

Things looked bright green. But Harry Potter, although he was sincere, knew he had to save his love. He grabbed a broomstick and, like Hogwarts broom ridden by too many students, beat the hippogriff freely until it ran off. "That will teach you to lick innocent people."

Then he clasped Draco Malfoy close. Draco Malfoy was bleeding contemptedly. "My darling," Harry Potter said, and pressed his lips to Draco Malfoy's eye.

"I love you," Draco Malfoy said loudly, and expired in Harry Potter's arms.

Harry Potter never loved again.
