    Customer: “I don’t want to use the internet. I want to receive my mail.”

    Me: “You can still receive mail. You just have to go to [web address].”

    Customer: “No. I want to be credited for this horrible thing.”

    Me: “Well, sir, is your internet service working?”

    Customer: “Yes.”

    Me: “Well, unfortunately that’s the service you’re paying for. The email is provided free of charge, so I am afraid I cannot credit you, considering the service you’re being charge for is working.”

    Customer: “I want to be credited because the email is down.”

    Me: “But, sir. You pay nothing for the email. Zero dollars.”

    Customer: “I don’t care! Credit me now!”

    Me: “Okay, sir. I will be happy to credit you 50% of what you have paid for the email.”

    Customer: “Thank you!”
