This hasn’t happened a lot but I did have to terminate a call today.
I listen to different voices everyday. I can remember everything about a regular caller within seconds because if their voice. I get used to judging people’s mood and feelings just buy their voice. But sometimes that’s a little more difficult. For instance it could be easy to think someone who might have issues with speech had been drinking or taking drugs.
Today’s caller was a person I couldn’t quite understand. He had a slur in his voice. So I had to ask a few questions to get some info from him, including where are you right now? Oh I’m in the beer garden of my local he said…..ok so now I know he’s been drinking and probably drunk. But I spend a minute more chatting just to confirm. He’s hammered!!!
I’m a bit stunned that he has called from a pub! In a beer garden that sounded pretty busy, no shy guy here then! I told him because I thought he was drunk I’d be putting the phone down. No I’m fucking not he said I could tell his tone had changed. Ok then I said. Tell me what this call is costing (there’s an automatic message at the beginning) I don’t fucking know you slut! He said
Dialing tone, but I caused it for a change. I don’t need that kinda bullshit!
