Search - "golden retriever"
Working from home yesterday when I got an angry call from an ex-client. (We don't work with her anymore because she is known to be extremely unreasonable)
After a couple of minutes of uninterupted yelling i politely told her i'd put her through to my hairy higher up "Sjors" whose in charge of these matters.
Seemingly pleased with this development of getting to talk with a higher up she actually managed to stay quiet for a minute while i was walking downstairs. Only to go into full yelling mode again the second i said "thanks for waiting here he is"
Sjors was more than happy to take the call while chewing his bone. Slobbering about.
It took about two full minutes before she realised my colleague is in fact my ever loyal golden retreiver.
She hasnt called back anymore afaik. 🙃11
