RE: OT: How to waste and hour of your life

Something that doesn't involve the use of shotguns would be good!

It depends on what we're hunting.

If you have nothing better to do, and would like to completely waste an hour
of your life, then call up "Toys R' Us" and ask them to check stock on a
badminton kit.

Them: "Toys R' Us, can you hold?"
Me: "Sure."

I hold, and hold, and hold. Bad music, too.

Them: "Toys R' Us, can you hold?"
Me: "Again?"
Them: "What?"
Me: "Nothing. Sure, I'll hold."

I hold, and hold, and hold.

Them:  "Thanks for holding, can I help you?"
Me: "Yes, before I drive all the way out there, I wanted to make sure you
had a Badminton Game Kit in stock."
Them:  "A what?"
Me:  "You know- 'Badminton.'  The game.  You've got a net and you hit the
little birdie thing back and forth with a racquet."
Them: "Oh.  Hold please."

I hold, and hold, and hold.

She finally picks back up.

Them: "This is for your bath?"
Me: "Bath?  I didn't plan to use it in the bath, but I must say, it has
possibilites."
Them: "What?"
Me: "No bath-- B A D M I N T O N.   It's a GAME.  With a net.  A birdie.
Racquets.  You hit the little birdie back and forth to each other over the
net.  You play it outside.  I want to buy the whole kit."
Them:  "Oh, that.  Hold please.  I'll check in the computer."

I hold, and hold, and hold.  More bad music.

New guy picks up.

Them: "Toys R' Us, can I help you?"
Me: "Someone is checking on an item for me already."
Them: "Oh, I'm helping you now."
Me: "Oh, good.  I'm looking for a badminton kit.  You know, the game.  It's
kind of like tennis, only smaller.  I need the net, the birdie, and 4
racquets."
Them:  "I'll go check.  Please hold."

I hold, and hold, and hold.

New guy comes back.

Them:  "Sorry, we don't carry tennis nets. You need a sporting goods store."
Me: "It's not a tennis net.  It' a badminton kit.  The kit.  The whole kit.
I'm looking at one on your web site through Amazon right now."
Them: "Oh, that.  Yeah, yeah... Hold on, I'll go check."

I hold, and hold, and hold.

Original girl gets back on the phone.

Them: "Sorry, we don't have your item."
Me: "But the other guy was checking on it.  Are you sure?"
Them: "Yes."
Me: "Just to make sure... What item was he checking for?"
Them: "The item for your bath.  We don't have it."
Me: "Yes, of course, the bath.  Well at least you've given me an interesting
idea."
Them: "What?"
Me: "Nothing.  Thanks for looking."

Sometimes I wonder why I bother.
