It makes you wonder how daft people really are . we wre talking about this last night ,have fun . C: I'd like the number of the Argoed Fish Bar in Cardiff, please. O: I'm sorry, there's no such listing. Are you sure you have the spelling correct? C: Well, it used to be called the Bargoed Fish Bar but the B fell off. C: I'd like the number of the Scottish knitwear company in Woven. O: I can't find a town called 'Woven'? Are you sure? C: Yes. That's what it says on the label - Woven in Scotland.

There is no accounting for the silliness that people come up with. I worked in a state park for several summers, and people would drive up under the GIANT sign that said Big Basin Redwood State Park, and then ask, "Where is Big Basin State Park?" It was all I could do to keep a straight face.

These are too funny! Can you imagine the good stories that these operators can tell when they get together at a party? They could probably write a book!

I used to work in call centres, and I was an operator for British Telecom and the things the general public used to ask for never ceased to amaze me. You think you've heard it all then someone comes out with a beauty! Like asking for the name of Jones, no address but he lives somewhere in Wales! Oh the joys of working with the public on the phones! Thanks for sharing!
