Funny Stories about Work (contest)

Rebecca aka The Book Lady is having a contest to pick the funniest work story and I'm one of the 5 finalists. My story is #4 The Joys of Customer Service. Read it and the other 4 finalists here and then vote for your favorite. The winner gets a Barnes & Noble gift card and that's something you all know I could really use. Poll closes tonight just before midnight so go vote now.
Enjoy!

EDITED TO ADD: I won - and with 51% of the vote. Thanks for reading. Now I have the agonizing decision of what books to buy with the gift card I won from Rebecca and the gift card I won last week from Shauna at Reading and Ruminations.

What I want to know is did you sell her the trash bags? I mean, she still needed them, even if she wasn't going to kill someone! LOL

I didn't hear about the contest until it was over, but it was dang funny! I've done customer service, but I can't recall anyone who wanted to stuff a body in a trash bag.

A belated congrats, Lenore (it just took me this long to find you)! I loved your story and you thoroughly deserved your win!
