It got sorted, eventually!
Me: Hello, I just wanted to confirm my exam time.
Reception: Are you sure it’s not today?
Me: It’s tomorrow. I just want to confirm when I’m scheduled to start.
Reception: What’s your name please?
Reception: Hmmm… Ummm…. Well… I don’t see it here…. Do you know when it starts?
Me: No. That’s why I’m calling. I believe it is in the afternoon.
Reception: Hmmm… Ok… Right, that’s why you’re calling… Can I put you on hold?
Reception: Can I have your name again, please?
Me: Samantha Riesco
Reception: … R…I…?
Me: R. I. E. S. C. O.
Reception: R. I. E. S. C. O?
Me: Yes, that’s correct.
Reception: Alright, just a moment.
Reception: Hi, Samantha?
Reception: […] You’re scheduled to write tomorrow from 1:30-6:00.
Me: Great. Thank you.
The Rise Against lyrics that kept running through my head for the duration of the call: “This is not a test, oh no / This is cardiac arrest!” (Collapse).
Very fitting, considering my blood pressure and the fact that the upcoming test is on Environmental Science, don’t cha think? 😀
