Customer: “How do I sign up for [service]?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Me: “Fantastic. Let me give you the address of our website. It’s ‘http–’”

Customer: “Wait. You’re going too fast.”

Me: “It’s ‘H’ as in ‘Hotel,’ ‘T’ as in ‘Thomas’—”

Customer: “No! You mean ‘T’ like ‘telephone.”’”

Me: “Yes, ‘T’ like ‘telephone.’ Then, another ‘T’ like ‘telephone,’ ‘P’ like ‘Peter’—”

Customer: “What? You mean ‘P’ like ‘pineapple?’”

Me: “Yes, ‘P’ as in ‘pineapple.’ So, http, colon—”

Customer: “What is that?”

Me: “Two dots, one above the other.”

Customer: “All right.”

Me: “After the two dots, there’s two slashes.”

Customer: “What does that mean?”

Me: “Let me just transfer you to the correct department; they’ll be happy to sign you up for [service].”
