Talking perfectly on the phone at work? Not realistic. Here are a few veterinary professionals that were willing to admit the blunders and – sometimes literal – hiccups they’ve experienced on the @DrAndyRoark Instagram.

1. When pets have human names…

Me: “Hi this is Tiarah calling from Alta Vista Animal Hospital. Is Chelsea available?”

Client: “Um yeah, but she can’t speak to you… because she’s our DOG.”

2. Oops. Who was I calling?

“Hello this is Dr K can I speak to Fluffy?” – @nkominek

3. The most adult of things to say.

I finished my conversation with the owner over the phone.. he said thanks for the help and I replied with “You’re welcome, night night.” 😑 – @xhollyleex

4. It’s natural.

I was leaving a message to see how “Fluffy” was doing. Mid-sentence I hiccup so loudly. Awesome. – @bvpeet

5. We all need support.

“Dunbar Animal Hospital. How may I hold you?” – @cait_lett_12

6. Some of us more than others…

I answered the phone one day and said, “This is Liz, how can you help me?” -@lizgannon11
