(I am answering the switchboard for a large hospital.)

Caller: “Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me what phone company the hospital uses?”

Me: “I’m not sure. The person that has that information left at 5:00 p.m. But if you call our purchasing office in the morning, they can tell you.”

Caller: “Oh, no! It is a matter of grave importance that I find out right now!”

Me: “What is the situation? Maybe I can help?”

Caller: “My grandmother died there about a week ago and she didn’t have a will. I know for a fact that all the phone companies record all of our conversations. So, I thought maybe grandma called someone while she was in the hospital and told them what she left me.”
