â€œYeah, itâ€™s me again,â€ he shot angrily into the mouthpiece. â€œNever mind confirming my name. Itâ€™s me. Trust me. You ready for an order?â€
There was a pause.
â€œAll right,â€ he ordered, shifting the phone on his shoulder. â€œI want 18 Type Aâ€™s, 6 465Bâ€™s and 42 Type Bâ€™s. You got that?â€œ
Bob listened intently as he read an email marked urgent.
â€œGood, then hereâ€™s what youâ€™re going to do,â€ he said in rapid fire English. â€œDeliver 6 Type Aâ€™s, 1 465B and 14 Type Bâ€™s to Department J. Take 10 Type Bâ€™s 9, Type Aâ€™s and 4 465Bâ€™s to Department F. And pay attention to this one! They got shorted last time, I cost us an important client.â€ He paused to study the list on his desk.
â€œNo, Iâ€™m not done,â€ he nearly shouted. â€œTake everything else to Department P, and make sure Villareal knows itâ€™s there. Have you got all that?â€
He listened for a few moments.
â€œPerfect,â€ he said, slightly calmer. â€œShip that out right now--overnight it if you have to--and charge my inventory account.â€
Bobâ€™s face got red again as he listened.
â€œWhat do you mean â€˜who is thisâ€™,â€ he exploded into the phone. "I told you itâ€™s me! Do you like your job? Whatâ€™s your name?â€
He listened again.
â€œI said, what is your name, mister?â€
He listened, and exploded again.
â€œWhat do you mean â€˜itâ€™s meâ€™!â€
