Was he hitting on me?
Friday, April 23, 2010
I talk to spanish speaking customers at work and they are gererally really friendly. Puerto Ricans specifically will always call me the spanish equivelant of "dear", "my love", "darling" etc. it s a cultural thing so its not a big deal
today however was just weird. It started out normal and while translating for another agent, they guy figured out i was from wisconsin based on my accent. that happens with english callers a lot. then we just started friendly chatting - weather, how long i've been with my company etc.
but then he asked if i've ever been to california (he lives there) or would visit anyone there. he then wanted to know my phone number and email.. i told him we can't give that out. and that i needed to get back to work.
I wasn't sure if he just was happy to have someone to talk to in spanish or if he was hitting on me. kinda weird but oh well... it made the day interesting.
