I used to work in a customer service role that handled the phone calls of the uber-angry customers. Several times a day, I would get calls from people asking to speak directly to the CEO....of a major, Fortune 500 company...because no one would credit their late fee and they felt that the CEO needed to know that personally.
My answer was always something along the lines of "The CEO entrusts those of us in this group to speak on his behalf." This was the standard line that our management group asked us to give. Anyway, I had one guy say "Well, you need to tell the CEO to be a man and not have little girls answering the phone and dealing with problems for him. Here's my number...give him that and tell him if he wants to have a man-to-man talk, to give me a call. If I don't here from him in 24 hours, I'll be closing my account. Thanks sweetie." Then he hung up.
I'm fairly certain I noted his account to say something like "Customer called to speak with CEO. Advised him that's not possible. Customer said he may close account." Arrogant jerk.
