    The Great State Of Confusion, Part 4

    | Baltimore, MD, USA | Geography

    (We provide a legal advice service, but we do not take calls about criminal matters.)

    Client: “Yes, hello. I live in Mississippi, and I’m calling because my husband got arrested and I—”

    Me: “Ma’am, I am very sorry to cut you off, but I do need to let you know we do not provide advice for criminal matters.”

    Client: “Oh. Um, can you tell me someone who might?”

    Me: “I do not have any numbers to give you, but you’ll want to contact a criminal attorney in your state.”

    Client: “Can you give me a number for that?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, our office is in Maryland. I do not have any numbers for your area.”

    Client: “Well, I’m in Mississippi, but he was in Georgia. Can you give me a number for a lawyer?”

    Me: “Again, I’m sorry, but we’re in Maryland. I do not have any numbers for down that way.”

    Client: “Can’t you just look in the phone book and give me the number for the police department?”

    Me: “No, ma’am. We’re in Maryland. I do not have a Georgia phone book.”

    Client: “What about the number for information?”

    Me: “I do not have that.”

    Client: “You don’t have the information number for your state?”

    Me: *speaking a little more obviously* “No. That is not our state, ma’am.”

    Client: “Well what state are you in?”

    Me: *sigh*
