My "ideal" Friday night would be getting home from work, changing, and going to dinner with friends, seeing a local band, having a camping/fishing trip planned, or seeing a Braves game.
So.. Where I work, me and my teammates will help cover the reception area so our receptionist can take breaks and go to lunch, etc. etc. And one of the many tools we have while there is our company help line for questions that we don't have the answer to. So (at this point) I have covered reception 3-4 times... I answer the phone to a person asking a difficult question. So I say, "Well miss, I don't have an answer for you... I can only give you the number to our help line and have you go from there. It's 1-888-***-Help. Have a great day!"
Halfway through the call, our receptionist had come back from lunch and overheard our conversation. Having a puzzled look on her face she says,
"Hey, I thought that the help line number was 1-877-***-Help?"
"Is it? I thought it was 1-888..."
"I'm pretty sure it is 1-877..."
"Oh, well hopefully they both go to the same place, cause I have been giving out 1-888... every time."
"Well, let's call both of them and see where they go."
First, I call the 1-877... number. In my head I'm thinking, "She's been there longer than I have. Let me default to what she says." Sure enough it goes through to the help line. So, I hang up the line and call 1-888... The way she described it, I was on the phone for 3 seconds, slammed the phone down, looked up at her with a bright RED face and said, "Never call that number. 0_0..." To which she gets EXCITED and says, "Why? What did the number go to?" She shooos me away, puts the phone on SPEAKER, dials the number, and the first thing you hear is, "Hello, and thanks for calling America's number one adult chat line..."
Yeah, with just a simple change to our company's help line number, it redirected to an adult phone sex line. And it's not enough that I had given this out to however many people that had called in the last month or so, but I work for one of the largest firms in the world. So I can just imagine that these people were trying to get ahold a partner or someone to make a million dollar deal and got redirected to a sex line... So now, at reception, there is a little post-it note with the correct help line number taped just above the phone so no one slips up again.
So embarrassed that day...
TL;DR - When I first started my job, I gave out the wrong number to the "help" line. *redfaced...
