    E.T. No Phone Home

    (I was working in the call center of a telco, troubleshooting and resolving faults in mobile phone handsets and modems.)

    Me: “Hello, this is [name], how can I help you?”

    Customer: “I want to return a faulty modem.”

    Me: “Okay, what seems to be the problem with the modem?”

    Customer: “It doesn’t contact the mothership.”

    Me: “Sorry?”

    Customer: “This modem. It’s faulty. I cannot contact the mothership with it!”

    Me: “Um, [company] has never offered nor guaranteed intergalactic coverage.”

    Customer: “Fine, I’ll just take it back to the shop.” *hangs up*
