She called back today to complain about her service (cellphone service) and not so smoothly goes into talking about how I'm an atheist. My phone calls at work are monitored, so she must know this. She kept pushing my buttons and being that I'm a good worker, I let her say her piece as not to be rude.

She then launched into a tirade about how the jews are going to have their eyes opened by god, as outlined in scripture. Not sure where it says that...I've read the bible, and from what I can tell, the writers and the people of the area in which the books were written would be classified as jewish. Anyway, at that point, the phone I was on lost battery and died.

10 minutes later, my boss calls and says I have to go to her house tomorrow because she requested I come see if it's a service issue or her phones.

More to follow, I'm sure...I have a feeling this has little to do with phones but more of a ploy to get me into a situation where she can convert me.

Suggest to your boss that it would be inappropriate for you to go.

100% this....refer him to the call that was monitored and say "I do not think she wants me to fix her service and I would feel uncomfortable in that situation, could you please send someone else?"

Also, usually, depending on the company, people cannot specifically request someone for home service...It should be the first available representative correct?
