(A number comes across the screen with the same area code as my hometown.)

Me: “Hi, this is [My Name]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “I was wondering if you could give me the number for the store in [Town #1]? I live over in [Town #2].”

Me: “Sure thing. So, you live in [Town #2]? I grew up there. I just graduated in ’06.”

Customer: “Oh, wow! What a small world! I graduated in ’82.”

Me: “That’s awesome. Okay, that number is [number].”

Customer: “Thanks! Wow, 1906… that’s incredible.”

Me: “Um, I graduated in 2006, not 1906.”

Customer: “Oh, no wonder you sound so young!”
