    Really? Then it joins a list of originally derogatory terms later embraced by the intended target - like Yankee.

    I have said it before but I work with a man who is blind and EVERY day without fail, he stands at my desk for half an hour to talk to me - and there are days I'm just not up for it. It's really stressful and I don't know how to tell him I need some time alone. I tried to tell him this evening and was ignored. I've been through a lot recently and am not up for a lot of chit chat. Sigh. :(:confused:

    Rude people on the phone. Just because there is distance between you and I does not give you the right to speak to me in such a condescending manner.

    Lady on phone: I like to know if you have the following item in stock.

    Me: Sure. Which item are you referring to?

    Lady: The P2 Respirator masks.

    Me: Sorry. We sold out earlier this week.

    Lady: Well, you should update your website accordingly.

    Me: Our website clearly states we are currently our of stock.

    Lady: I can read. The website states you have them in stock.

    Me: Did you enter your postcode into our website and then select our store?

    Lady: No. Why should I do that?

    Me: Because if you had done so it would have informed you all stores in our region are currently sold out of P2 masks.

    Lady: But your website states your business has these in stock.

    Me: That's because we are a national business. If our store in Perth, Western Australia has these in stock the website indicates they are available however if you enter your postcode the website informs you if your closest stores have the product available. In this case we don't.

    Lady: Hangs up.

    People like that are energy vampires and need to be avoided for one's health. This guy traps you in a sense so you are in a difficult position.
    I'm sure you have tried these tricks, but taking out your cell and saying you have to take an important call might help, or excusing yourself to the restroom is another option. You may consider going to the office manager and saying something. Look at it as a personal health issue, which it is. I know how draining such people can be.

    I don't know if it's an Irish thing or what but:

    People who say 'Sorry??' really loudly instead of pardon.

    People who say 'Sorry' in place of excuse me.
