Pomp and arrogance

Me: Thank you for calling XYZ Company. How can I help you?

Caller: Hi, this is Tony Barella.*

Me: (pausing while I wait for Mr. Intelligent to answer my question)

Oh, THAT Mr. Barella! I’m so sorry I did not recognize your Lordliness on the phone! My most humble apologies. Please do not have me beheaded for not realizing how I could be of service at the mere mention of your name.

*name changed to protect the overly pompous


*Actual caller handled by me while working for an answering service. Names & Identifying information have been changed. Bolded text is what I DESIRED to say…*
