Company to reporter: Nobody talks to our CEO. He’s ‘like God.’

Have you seen this man? Sources say he's a CEO in York County.

So, I called a company yesterday.

(A company I’m not going to name, because, well, I don’t want to let anyone know what I’m working on.)

So, yeah, I called a company — a company in York — and I asked to speak to someone.

We’ll just call him “Bob.” He’s the CEO.

The receptionist tried to transfer me to Bob’s line, but I end up in a different department instead.

I ask, again, to be transferred to Bob.

There’s an awkward silence.

“Nobody talks to Bob. He’s like … God,” the voice says.

Like God, huh? Interesting.

I wasn’t aware The Big Man Upstairs did conducted business in the state of Pennsylvania.

That being said,

I hope he gives me a ring. I’d really like to schedule an appointment with him.

That’s a story in itself.

    People like these make their company look so bad. You should always make time for people to see you! I feel your pain Lauren, I hear it everyday. Great article, short and sweet to the point!

  2. Lauren Boyer says:

    Haha. I couldn’t believe this happened. I have never had someone compare their boss to “God.”

    I have heard of this. Especially in sales or recruiting type companies.
