A most bizarre exchange….
Caller: Yes, hello? Is this Steal Your Soul?
Me: Yes sir.
Caller: I need to verify the National Latino Organization.
Me: Uh? And how can I help you with that?
Caller: Yes, are you Steal Your Soul?
Me: Yes. What can I do for you sir?
Caller: I need to verify an application.
Me: Do you need to verify someone’s employment with us?
Caller: I need credit.
Caller: Can you verify the Negro Women’s National Council?
Me: Not without Googling it.
Caller: I give you a name. Naimmeateyelllawayf.
Me: Can you spell that please?
Caller: N-A-A-I-A-Leigh spelled like a girl not a boy-Y-A-X-for you want what else-W-O-I-T
Me: You want me to tell you if this individual did or did not work here? Can I ask which organization you are representing?
Caller: National Women Negros.
Me: (not bothering to check) Yes, I do not have anyone by that name.
Caller: Are you on my application?
Caller: But is says here National Negros or Latino Women have an organization and the phone number is 202-8159-
Me: I’m pretty sure you have the wrong number.
Caller: But I don’t want to have a wrong number. I need credit.
Me: Sometimes your job is your credit.
Caller: Yes, yes. May I speak to the company of your name?
Me: Okay. I’ll transfer you to myself. I’m ready. You may speak.
Caller: This is all on the application she sent me with two phone numbers for Women of Nations.
Me: I must carry on living my life now. Thanks for calling.
