You all know I work in a call centre for a telecommunications company that will remain unnamed, right? You also probably know that we hear some of the funniest things.
Some guy called in and talked to someone else but this story was the funniest thing I had ever heard. I will write it out in Luganda and translate it after.
Agent: Good morning, (agent) speaking, how can I help you?
Sub: Gyebale ko nyabo. Nafunye mu obuzibu zibu mu ssimu yange. Osobola kunyamba ko?
Agent: Buzibu ki Ssebo?
Sub: Waliwo ennamba enkubila bulikanaku ku sawa zezimu naye essimu bwenjikwata, omuntu tayogela. Ono’musajja asumbwa nyo. Anzukusa ku sawa kuminabili ate natayogela kintu kyona. Nina kyensobola okukola o’kyilekelawo?
Agent: Ssebo, eyo nambe ki?
Sub: Enamba sijilaba, naye elinya ndilaba.
Agent: Bwoba olaba elinya, kitageza nti enamba mweli mu ssimu yo.
Sub: Neda, enambe telimu, najinonyeza nga sijilaba

Agent: Good morning, (agent) speaking, how may I help you?
Sub: Good morning. I am having a problem with my phone, can you help me?
Agent: What is the problem, sir?
Sub: There is a number that keeps calling me but when I pick the phone up no one speaks. It calls me everyday at the same time and it is getting very annoying. It calls at 6.00am and wakes me up and this person does not answer me, is there anyway I can stop this?
Agent: What is the number?
Sub: I don’t know the number but I know the name. It shows on my phone.
Agent: If you see the name, that must mean the number is in your phone.
Sub: The number is not in my phone, I checked and it is not there.
Agent: Ok, tell me the name you see.
Sub: That person is called SNOOZE!
