Me: “Good evening, how can I help you?”

Caller: “What are your rooms at for Thursday night?”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, we’ve sold out. Would you—”

Caller: “Okay, but what are the prices?”

Me: “Well, the prices are based on availability, so I can’t give an exact quote, but I can—”

Caller: “What do you mean?! Why can’t you just give me the price?!”

Me: “Well, based on other nights, it would be between $169 and $199, plus the local tax, but we are sold—”

Caller: “No! You’re not hearing me! What’s the exact amount!?!”

Me: “That would be $222.88, ma’am.”

Caller: *in a very condescending tone* “There! That wasn’t so hard, was it!?”

Me: “Uh…”

Caller: “So, how many of those do you have left?”
