“I work for a restaurant delivery company based in the Tampa, Florida area. We had an order come in from a customer ordering a second time, wanting us to deliver Indian food to them. Seemed to make sense, right? They informed me that their address had changed, which is not unusual, but when I entered in the new address I noticed that the zip code wasn’t one that I was familiar with. When I looked it up I realized they were ordering from a zip code in New York! I assumed it was just some prank call and was ready to hang up, but decided to ask her a few more questions. I asked the lady on the other end if she is aware that we were based in Florida. She said yes, and that she enjoyed the food we delivered for her so much while she was down here on vacation that she was hoping we could deliver some more to her.
So, of course I had to tell her that there is no way we could take this order and she started to flip out. She rants and rants and eventually I simply hang up the phone. Bad call. She tried calling back about 20 times that night and about a dozen times the next day. We didn’t answer it obviously, and we didn’t answer any of the other numbers she tried to use with NY area codes. Finally she sent a massive rant of an email to my boss complaining about me and our service. My boss laughed it off with the rest of us.”
