(I work for an answering service where we get calls from tenants after hours with requests for the maintenance man.)

Customer: “Hi, I’m in apartment twelve. I need to leave a message for the maintenance man.”

Me: “Sure, and what’s the message?”

Customer: “Well, I’m leaving for a while. I don’t know when I’ll be back. I need to know that he’ll keep an eye on my stuff.”

Me: “Okay, is that all?”

Customer: “Yeah, I think so. See, I’m leaving the planet tomorrow.”

Me: “Um… excuse me?”

Customer: “I’m leaving the planet. Problem is, I’m only allowed to bring one suitcase, and I have a lot of stuff in my apartment! I just need to know that it will be safe while I’m gone.”

Me: “Okay, so you want me to tell the maintenance man to watch your stuff until you return from outer space?”

Customer: “Exactly! Thank you so much for being so sweet!”
