Private Conversations of a Virtual Assistant

Sometimes the life of a VA throws up interesting situations. Let me share a few of them with you.

Only recently I got a long questionnaire from a prospective client who had a question

–“Have you been convicted before?” Now what kind of question is that to ask!

I replied with – “Not yet. Have you?"

In yet another case, the request for quote had a threat of cancellation of the job if certain conditions were not met. I wondered what relationship I will be building with a person whose first handshake was accompanied by a threat instead of a smile.

I have had to do the strangest things for my clients. A client threw me off guard by asking me if I can find out which perfume was used in the elevator of a hotel in Caribbean Islands he visited 2 weeks back as it was haunting him.

I gave it a go- asked the hotel manager to get me out of my predicament and had the answer with website of the supplier in 24 hrs.

A doctor wanted to play a practical joke on his brother. I was to phone his brother and call him for dinner at a restaurant. I was to tell his brother arrogantly that the doctor is a busy person and would not like to be kept waiting.

The good doctor advised that he enjoyed getting an infuriated response from his brother.

A lady in Miami wanted old furniture removed from inside the house to make way for the new furniture. Now from 8856 miles away, I talk to a community welfare group and Chris says he will remove it at 5 pm the next day.

A real estate agent wanted a girl in my office to sing him awake at 6 in the morning with her “sweet” voice.

I have patched up differences between a client and his supplier. But what I loved most was writing love letters to my client’s fiancee.

On my clients behalf, of course.
