(I am a phone customer service rep for a government agency that has been strongly encouraging constituents to use our website for basic governmental functions. It is my first day out of training.)

Me: “How may I help you?”

Caller: “Hello. I just want to know if you charge spiritual taxes to people of certain religious beliefs?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Caller: “Spiritual taxes. Do you charge them for using your website?”

Me: “… I think that’s more a question for your religious leader of choice, but no, to the best of my knowledge we do not charge taxes on the soul for using our website.”

Caller: “Oh, wonderful!” *click*
