“There’s Obviously a Difference in Opinion” 21 Feb 2009Posted by Jessa in Humor, Money.
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?
Caller: Do you recognize there’s a difference between half a dollar and half a cent?
Caller: Do you therefore recognize that there’s a difference between .002 dollars and .002 cents?
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.
