American Man?

I called the American Girl magazine yesterday(not because I actually subscribe to this magazine, but I had a question about the "free" magazine I requested. Yes, I'm cheap). So, anyways, I call, expecting to hear this snobby dumb blonde
sweet girl on the other end of the line, and who answers? A man. Not just any man, a manly man with a husky voice. I almost laughed as soon as he answered and I heard his deep, "Hello. American Girl magazine, what can I help you with today?" Wouldn't you have thought a female would answer? I mean, this is American Girl Magazine! I guess they can't discriminate against gender when hiring, but I kinda felt bad for the dude. Then I thought he must be in it for the perks-maybe they give free dolly shoes to the employees. I mean, who wouldn't love that?

Are you sure it wasn't some guy in India who has gone through the voice-neutralisatin programme? Yes, they have such programmes.

Either this is another example of how bad the economy is getting...or...maybe he's not as manly as he sounds...

HA! You are so funny! I would have probably been freaked, hung up & had to call back! Next time you call & he answers ask how many hang ups he gets!!

How funny. He probably throws off the disgruntled callers and woos them with his husky tone.
