(We’ve had bad service with our Internet company for a while. Every time we call, they give us a different excuse. Normally it is just usual stuff about technical problems.)

ISP: “Hi there. This is [Name] from [ISP]. How can I help you?”

Me: “Hi, I’m calling because our Internet keeps cutting out. It’s been doing this for a while and every time we’re reassured it will be sorted out soon.”

ISP: “Ah. I apologise, ma’am. That’s because of the tsunami in Japan.”

Me: “… What?”

ISP: “That’s why the service is a little unstable, but it’ll be back to normal in no time!”

Me: “This company is based in the UK, right?”

ISP: “That’s correct.”
