 Assume you are working as an operator at a call center in India and are receiving irate calls from Americans and Londoners.How would you handle such calls?Imagine a situation and state you response.
 There is a framework to handle such inbound calls:-

The starting will be a greeting one says good afternoon,good evening,good morning etc.
Learn accept what is said-so with due respect I will accept what he/she is telling except sex/sexual conversation.
Have to be cool all the time and have to understand what exactly he/she is looking for.
If he/she doesnot want to listen to me then and want to talk to my boss in,US/London then again I will try to understand the problem.
I will not try to ask any personal question but costly handle the situation and will try to nullify the scenario.
