    Me: “Alright, well, it’s letting you know that it didn’t have power. If you press and hold the nine key, that should clear it right out.”

    (I hear sounds as the customer appears to fumble with the phone and something in the background.)

    Customer: “I don’t see it. Which one is the nine key?”
