Um, I think I’m funny and am here to make myself laugh, but you can too if you want!

Just briefly I’d like to discuss my day with you. You know, since you’re SO bored that you WANT to read what goes on in the Work. Um I’m the “Sales Administrative Assistant.” This means I’m the new receptionist in the sales department. Without a Director of Sales to be at the beck-and-call for my job is pretty boring. I do a little of this and a little of that. But, I’m sure it will pick up eventually and I’ll feel more comfortable and not swear everytime the phone rings “good afternoon, sales, this is aiyani.” and HI, they won’t let me use a different name!!!!!!! For those of you who don’t know me and hotels, I’ve been in the “hospitality industry” for 6 years, and for the last 3 I’ve used an alias name because well…..i don’t think Aiyani works in a hotel. Aiyani is in the L.A area pursuing her performing career. So I would use Gina, or Lydia (hence the aiyginalydia on AOL IM by the way). BUT THEY WON’T LET ME DO IT HERE!!!!!!!!! NO DEALS!!!!!!!!! MOOCOWBOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I HAVE to deal with people EVERDAY butchering my name like there’s no tomorrow. But I think this time I’ll make sure they GET IT—–like this:

me: Sales this is Aiyani
them: hi naomi–
me: no. it’s AI YA NI
them: sorry, I OH NEE?
me: no. there is no O


me: Sales this is Aiyani
them: hi diane–
me: there’s no diane here, my name is AI YA NI
them: sorry, LeiLani?
me: no (click)


me: Sales this is Aiyani
them: hi I OH NAH
me: no, that’s not what I said
them: I’m sorry what’s your name?
me: (click)


me: Sales….this is Aiyani
them: Hi ArLani, this is Bill
me: hi fred how can I help you?

or (my favorite)

me: Sales this is Aiyani can you hold?
them: sure
me: thank you (click)

hahahahahahahahahah – BrightEyes gets ALL OF THIS….

I didn’t go to the gym today, no motivation. Wanted to catch up on sleep and clean my room a bit. yah yah yah, excuses excuses. whatever – I pay for it you don’t!

  1. I *yawn* point at your knee…..
    Now that I have have recovered from the HUGE grin and giggles your post just brought me,I must tell a story from today….
    me: Spyglass Inn, this is Amelia
    him: Hi Emily, I’m looking for this Satur…wait, your name’s not emily is it?
    me: nope, its Amelia… but if you book a room for Friday and Saturday you can call me Emily…
    him: okay, Emily, I’ll take it, your good at this sales stuff….
    I agree with him and think I should get COMMISSION for sales like that ๐Ÿ™‚
    But, what do I have instead? A sticker that says “Turn Around BrightEyes”!!! So, I s’pose I shall keep answering the phone and be happy. Only two more hours and I am free! Oooo! someone just ordered Pirates, must go watch Johnny……. Sometimes Hotel life is just that good ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. okay…
    So now that I’ve commented to Amelia on your journal! YAY! for getting rid of stupid people! Let me tell you about my morning so far…
    me- “Good morning Rarig Construction, this is Seanah.”
    them- “how do you spell your name?”
    me- “S-E-A-N-A-H”
    them- S-H-A wait you said what?”
    me- “spell it however you want. I’m the only Seanah here…”

  3. hahahahahaha
    Holy Cow, you so funny!That was cracking me up!!
    I answer phones all day too and I feel some of your pain.
    But my callers are usually Irate.
