(All the papers across the country recently got a new phone system, and it seems to have confused many callers. I have personally experienced people calling multiple times to get a hold of me, and I’ve heard many coworkers complain that their sources are having troubles with the system as well.

Caller: “Hi, what department is this?”

Caller: “…Where the hell is that?!”
