(An elderly man walks into my cellphone store.)

Customer: “My phone doesn’t work.”

Me: “Okay, sir, what is it doing?”

Customer: “It’s not calling.”

Me: “Did anything happen before it quit working?”

Customer: “No, it just quit.”

Me: “I’m going to do a test call. Can I call your phone, sir?”

Customer: “Yes. It rings, it just wont call.”

Me: “Hmm, okay. If it takes calls, it should send calls.”

(I call his phone and it works.)

Customer: “Well, it doesn’t call out! Are you stupid?”

(I call my phone with his and it works. I show him my ringing phone)

Me: “Sir, it seems like your phone is working. It’s calling my phone now.”

Customer: “NO! Call [phone number].”

Me: “So, it’s only not working when you call that number?”

Customer: “YES!”

Me: “There must be a problem with that person’s phone…”

Customer: “NO! I have to call them! It must be YOUR fault!”

(I call the number and hear an electronic signal.)

Me: “Sir, it’s a fax number.”
