Useless idiots

Today, I had to call a sporting goods shop to find out if they stocked a certain product I was looking for.

Person on Telephone: Good Afternoon
Me: Hello, do you have xxx in stock?
Person on Telephone: *short pause* I don't know.
Me: *shock* You don't know?
Person on Telephone: No, I don't know.
Me: *pause* Er, well goodbye then.

?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! You don't know? You don't KNOW?!! Well what are you paid to do then! Do you expect me to tell you over the phone how to find out whether a certain item is in stock or not?
I'm not one of those fussy expats who writes to 7Days to complain about the 'poor' standard of living here while sipping some Earl Grey and instructing the maid to go buy some new solid gold toilets for the house, but some people really are just clueless! Then again it probably wasn't his fault as maybe he wasn't equipped with grey matter between his ears. Sigh.

At least you got a "don't know". The twat in Pierre Cardin told me he was busy & I should phone back in 5mins.......yeah right!
