Caring About That is Way Above My Pay Grade

This morning I was tasked with yet another assignment that I filed under “WTF”.

I had to research a customer’s item that we supposedly recently produced and when I found it, I discovered that "recently" was actually 15 years ago and thus exists in the system solely as a faint, wispy memory that is blocked by an error message.


Of course nothing will ever beat the time a customer asked (softly demanded, I might say) me to send him the cell phone number of the FedEx driver who was delivering his order. In that case I couldn’t even find the energy to respond because I had no idea how I was supposed to act subservient and also incredulous at the same time. Quite the pickle, you see.

So what are some of everyone’s gems from work? Any sort of impossible assignment or person will do. It’ll be like Not Always Working/Right all up in here.
