Wednesday I posted about South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley ordering state workers to answer phones with the bubbly phrase "It's a great day in South Carolina."
After offering a few phone answering suggestions of my own, I tossed the topic to you guys. And the results? An embarrassment of rich, snarky goodness! Here are some of your gems from both Facebook and MaddowBlog:
Ali Cole Hi, thanks for calling Missouri, if you're here, you're family...seriously, we are related.
Perry Sloane Thank you for calling the State of Ohio. We can't come to the phone right now as all of our public employees have been fired thanks to SB 5. Your call will be answered by a representative at our call center in India. Thank you!
Tom Davis Hi, this is Illinois; where our former governors make our license plates for us.
Gig Hartline Hello, Ohio, no this is Koch Industries. We bought the state about 4 months ago. Any questions can be directed to our HR resources department.
Clyde Higashi Hello from Hawaii, or if you're Republican, from East Kenya...
Jonathan Machado Gracias por llamar a Texas, for English press 2.
mrz190 A big Texas howdy, home of the Apostles, if I am Raptured during this call, you will be transferred to another operator.
Michigan Unions Gooood afternoon and thank you for calling Michigan, where local elections are more like suggestions!
Brittany Everett "Thanks for calling Tennessee, the Educayshun State. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law."
