So I’m sitting at work today and I get a call from a woman with a stern authoritative voice asking to speak to an unknown coworker. Upon further questioning, she reveals that she’s calling from Credit Management. Immediately, my spider senses start tingling and I knew right away that she had to be a bill collector calling to harass one of my coworkers.
Having been in this situation before, all I wanted to do was “cover his 6”. In laymen’s terms, I wanted to protect my coworkers’ backside from the enemy. After all, if a bill collector called my job looking for me I would want someone to cover my 6 too! I didn’t even know the wanted guy but I refused to divulge any information about him.
The bill collector asked if I knew him and I told her that I didn’t. She then asked if we had a company directory and I stalled by telling her that I was looking through it but I really wasn’t. Caught off guard, I put the caller on hold and asked my supervisor what to do and she advised me to tell the caller that we don’t accept bill collector calls…I love my job!!!
