  • And your name is?

    *A note to the mods: I was very leary about posting this topic because of some of the material used. If it's over the top, please feel free to edit, delete or lock.
    *I decided to edit the first part of this. I know it loses what I intended to be funny, but I just think it's a bit much. For those who didn't see and would to know, I'll tell you in private.

    Yesterday I was yapping on the phone with JeeGirl and we were discussing the receptionist at her company. She has told me over and over again that this woman is a certified tart - totally brainless.

    Jee tells me that anyone can call up with a funny, fictitious or famous name and the woman wouldn't think twice about it and she'd just let the call through. So I'm thinking there's no way someone could be that lame and decided to give it a try. I picked a name that I know is really bad, so don't be so rough on me when you read the following. It was the only one I could think of at the time.

    I'm driving along in my car and come to a red light and dial the number to Jee's work. Sure enough, the receptionist answers.

    "_ _ _ _ _, may I help you?"

    "Yes, may I speak with Jeanine please?"

    "Who can I say is calling?"

    "My name is Mike _ _ _ _ ."

    "I'm sorry, what was that name again?"

    <said in as manly a voice as I could muster> Mike _ _ _ _."

    "What company are you with, sir?"

    "I'm with the Fulton Fish Company."

    "One moment please."

    Next thing ya know, Jee picks up the phone and all I could hear was laughter. I also was laughing so hard that the tears were streaming down my cheeks. It took a good 5 minutes before either of us could finally talk because of laughing so hard.

    While on my first break at work today, I called Jee's office again. I thought why not go for broke and see if she takes the bait again.

    "Hello _ _ _ _ _"

    "May I speak with Jeanine, please?"

    "Who's calling?"

    "Ben Dover, from Get Lubed, Inc."

    "Could you repeat the last name for me please. I didn't get that."

    "Sure, it's Dover. Ben Dover."

    "Thank you, I'll put you right through."

    And sure enough she did!

    Decided to try it ONE more time, so on my 2:30 break, I called Jee yet one more time.

    "Hello, _ _ _ _ _"

    "Jeanine, please"

    "Your name?"

    "Haywood Jablowme, from Lockjaw.com"

    "Could you spell your last name for me?"

    "Jablowme. J A B L O W M E."

    Next thing you know...silence. I'm thinking. Ok, she knows now. I was all set for her to hang up on me when she puts me right through to Jee.

    And to top this off, Jee tells me the receptionist is preggers. People like that shouldn't be allowed to breed! [Eek!]

    Here's some more good names:
