1) Answer Call
2) Transfer Call
When no one is on the phone I either do actual work or more often just catch up on the days news. Today, though, something happened which has never happened before.
A currier came in with several packages for someone. A normal person would just sign for them and eventually call the co-worker to come and pickup the package the next time they passed through reception.
But I am not a normal person. I am a person who has currently rated over 1600 on Netflix which means I have seen WWWAAAYYY too many movies.
And the reason I won't sign for packages that aren't for me or that I don't know the contents of is because of the movie Broken Down Palace*. Never seen it? Oh, let me give you a brief little description: Two girls go on vacation in Thailand. They agree to carry a package for a stranger. SPOILER ALERT: The package contained drugs. They got caught and ended up in a Thai prison.
So sorry to all UPS, FedEx, Postmen, DHL, or bike messengers. You will have to wait while I call the person the package was intended for up to the front desk 'cause I ain't signing for it.

* You could also substitute Bridget Jones 2: The Edge of Reason but it doesn't provide as negative a look at a Thai woman's prison because as long as you wear a bra and know Madonna you will okay in that scenario because a cure British barrister will save you and you won't have to depend on the president from Independence Day.
