E Pluribus Dumbum

| Right | January 9, 2012

(I”m working at a call center that sells products out of a very large catalog that doesn’t change often. We have just moved from Volume III to Volume IV.)

Me: “Ma’am, if you could turn to page 36, in volume four, I would be more than happy to assist you with that product.”

Customer: “I don’t have a volume four. I only have a volume I V.”

Me: “Ma’am…that is volume four. It’s printed in Roman numerals.”

Customer: “Does that mean I have to learn Latin to read this stupid catalog?!”
