“There’s Obviously a Difference in Opinion” 21 Feb 2009

It looks like a few Verizon employees need a remedial lesson in math:

I found it amusing (and also a bit pathetic) that the manager didn’t even get it when the guy tried to explain it step-by-step:

Caller: Do you recognize there’s a difference between one dollar and one cent?

Manager: Definitely.

Caller: Do you recognize there’s a difference between half a dollar and half a cent?

Manager: Definitely.

Caller: Do you therefore recognize that there’s a difference between .002 dollars and .002 cents?

Manager: …No.

Wow.   I also loved how the manager stated, “There’s obviously a difference in opinion.”  Um, no.  It’s math.  It’s not subject to opinion.  It’s not like 2+2=4, except on alternate Thursdays.  A value in dollars is not the same as the identical value in cents. Case closed.

I wonder if Verizon would appreciate it if their customers made the same mistake in reverse.

I work at a fast food restaurant and believe me, my manager would certainly have made this same stupid mistake.
