This is my grandmother,
She worked in New York City, in midtown. She had her own office with an amazing view, I think she worked on the 24th floor but I’m not hundred percent sure… Anyways she was covering for the receptionist when she went on lunch because the woman who usually does it was out. The door bell rang and she answered it, it was an Asian woman and a Black man selling copiers. The Asian woman, assuming my grandmother had some low level position, didn’t even bother with her when my grandmother greeted her. The Asian woman requested to speak to someone higher. Knowing where this was going my Grandmother asked her co-worker to speak to the woman. The woman then directed her to the person that would be in charge of ordering the copiers. As they went into the office they saw my Grandmother sitting at her amazing desk, in her amazing office. My Grandmother then motioned them to sit down. The Asian woman was so stunned that she couldn’t even get through her sales pitch. But even if the woman performed an opera, my Grandmother wasn’t going to buy those copiers.
My Grandmother is awesome. She also told this story a lot better then I could <3
