Re: Are there that many Jack A$$ men
A couple of posts about preferential treatment reminded when I was working in a particular office. We needed supplies to continue with the project. Colleagues were complaining how bad our account manager was (we were his client), not returning calls or getting supplies to us when needed. The director requested I call him as I was new in. I called, placed the order, he arrived with supplies within about two hours.
He asked to meet me.
Took one look and said 'By your accent, I thought you'd look different...' His facial expression and disappointed tone was classic. I know it was inappropriate of him but I had to hold back the laughter. I replied 'Sorry to disappoint you.' He grunted, told me who he expected me to to look like, handed over the order and left.
The team commented they'd never received service that fast before. 'Well now he knows I don't look like his Hollywood crush, it probably won't happen again!'
