Adventures on the Work Phone Number

Setting: MY WORK PHONE RINGS.

Background: PEOPLE HERE COME TO MY DESK, USE IM, OR USE EMAIL. RECRUITERS ON THE OTHER HAND FIND MY RESUME, USE THE CORPORATE DIRECTORY TO TRACK ME DOWN, AND CALL. I HATE THIS, BUT WHAT CAN I DO, NOT ANSWER MY PHONE?)

Recruiter: “Hi Joe, I’m [redacted] from [redacted] we specialize in Oracle and Java recruiting”

Me: “I don’t do either of those things here.”

Recruiter: “Ok, do you know who I should be talking to?”

Me: (WITH DISDAIN) “Nope.”

Recruiter: “Ok, thanks.”

Me: (click)

And, Scene.
