i have 2 jobs, a hospital and a video store. these are my stories.
a lady calls on the phone asking how to tell if a disc is scratched. here's a paraphrased version of the conversation
Customer: "Yeah, hi, um, how can you tell if a disc is scratched?"
Me: "Turn it over and look at it."
C: "I mean when you're watching it."
M: "The picture will freeze, it will jump to different scenes, the picture will become all pixelated...any of those things."
C:"Well what if it's not doing any of those things?"
I hung up on her.
a man comes to my office requesting records. another paraphrased version of our conversation:
Customer: "I'd like copies of all my records."
Me: "Ok. Are these going to an area physician's office? We can send them directly to the doctor if you'd like."
C:"No, they're for my own personal use."
Me: "Ok, just fill out this release form for me. (to signify dates of service and proof of identity)
C: "Can you do it for me? I can't read."
and people say eugenics is a BAD idea.
thank you ladies and gentlemen, you've been a wonderful audience.
