I have not had a people are crazy lately, but here's a "People are DUMB...."
Just now, I called my credit card company because there was a mistake on my card and they needed to credit me. The rep asked me to update my current info with him - how much do I make, do I own or rent, yada, yada.....
He asks me, "Income?"
I say, "Individual or household?"
Whatever?!?!?! Is this a business? Come on American Express - don't you train your people? It's called screen shots (or demarcations).
Next - and you gals will love this one - "Do you work at all? Or are you just a stay at home mom?"
OK - there are so many things wrong with this statement. Let's list them shall we???
1) You are assuming because I am a 34 year old female that I am a mom. Then you are assuming that I don't work. Now you just assume that I am staying home with the kids.
2) You also said JUST a stay at home mom. Not cool dude.
3) Uh, yeah. I work. I work my ass off. In fact, I'm working right now! Well, technically I'm taking a break so I can write this because I'm so annoyed.
4) Do you work at all? At all? What do people say here - Uh, well, I work a little. Here and there. More like a hobby. You need to WORK on your phone and people skills.
AMEX - start investing in your people. Maybe it was this guy's first day. Sheesh.
