Wiwille is not that mature.

Listed below is a conversation I had with a customer tonight.

Me: I have you listed here as Richard, but your email address states Rick.
Do you go by Rick or Richard?
Rick: You can call me Rick.
Me: And your last name is James?
Rick: Yep.
Me: .......
Rick: Don't say it man.
Me: I promise you I won't.
Rick: Good. I'm so sick of hearing that.

Poor guy, but honestly when the customer asked for something it took all I had not to scream "I'll get right on it, cause YOU'RE RICK JAMES BITCH." Damn you Chappelle for not coming up with some other annoying, mildly clever catch phrase that white people can use consistently well after it stopped being funny.
"If anything I consider myself non-violent, I'm from the hippy era, peace, love, groovy." - Rick James

That is classic. That would have been tough to hold in.

Oh, the restraint! You acquitted yourself admirably, my man. Personally, I would have been more tempted to ask him to say it for me, because I think that would be funnier.

Once when I was on the phones I got a guy named Bill Gates. He expected me to make jokes, too, but I just said, "I'm sure you called yourself Bill before he got famous, or you would go by Will."

He could have the name O.J Simpson or Michael Jackson or even Michael Bolton (see Office Space). Yeahhhhh! O.K.

Scott - Yes it sure was.

Mattbear - I now wish I would have started right into him. I mean he made the mistake of not going by Richard.

Big Ben - "Why should I change my name? He's the one who sucks."
