Attention please! Let’s have a break and think how interesting our job is! It is worth-reading.
It all started since we’ve got our place and dealt with the Egyptian Market. We pass through many “Comedian” situations because of the nature of our field which seems incomprehensible to many people. Thanks to the revolution that helped in increasing the level of technological awareness and it was beneficial for us too. However, here we are in 2014 and many situations happen as if we deal with “Simpsons”. It is not as funny as it seems, but it is somehow shocking.
* Below are the latest situations in 2014:
Me: Hello, how may I help you?
Customer: If you please, I want to set up an internet connection,
Me: umm.. I’m sorry, we don’t provide internet service, we offer interactive marketing solutions.
Customer: like what …?
Me: we create for you an online website for your company.
Customer: but I have to have internet connection to check my website, right?
Customer: Well, why don’t you provide me with Internet service and then we can create the website …
Me: thanks for calling, Sir! TIK!
Me: Sir, would you please provide me with your email to send you samples of the requested design?

Me: …. ! TIK!
Customer: Please, I want to take a quick snapshots of my products.
Me: Sorry, but it is not available today, is there a way we can take the pictures tomorrow?
