    Caller: “I would like to buy a mirror please.”

    Me: “Okay, we have beveled edges, shaped mirrors, plain mirrors. What sort were you after?”

    Caller: “Well I just need one to cover this space. So, can you tell me how much it’s going to cost?”

    Me: “Sure. I just need to know how big you need it.”

    Caller: “What do you need to know that for? It’s just a normal mirror.”

    Me: “I need to know the dimensions so I can give you a proper price.”

    Caller: “Fine, then. Hang on.” *Few minutes pass.* “Are you there?”

    Me: “Yes, I’m here. How big is it?”

    Caller: “It’s this big.”

    Me: “How big?”

    Caller: “I said it’s this big.”

    Me: “Are you standing there with your arms out?”

    Caller: “Yes, why?”

    Me: “Well, because I can’t see how big ‘this’ is. Look, I’ll send out a rep to quote you, okay?”

    Caller: “Fine then, come as quickly as you can. I’m a busy woman, you know!”
