Boss: What company are you with?
Me: XYZ Company.
Boss: Get out of here! We got FUCKED by XYZ years ago and I'm never dealing with them again! Get out!
Me: Sir, I am so sorry to hear that. If you don't mind me asking, what happened?
Boss: I'll tell you what happened - we got FUCKED! They sent us to collections...(ten minute rant about my company)...and I swore I'd never deal with the sons of bitches who own your company again!
Me: Those sons of bitches actually aren't with the company anymore. We got bought out by ABC company a few years ago.
Boss: And you have good prices on folders?
Me: Yep. Anything else you're out of?
Boss: Paper clips
Boss: ...and post-its, and envelopes, and copy paper and photo paper.
Me: I'll get that taken care of and give you an additional discount for placing such a large order.
Boss: Thanks! I'm glad you came in today!
People are ridiculous.
