Sky’s The Limit… Well, Four

, , , , | Learning | December 1, 2017

(As part of a job application, I need a Student Status Certificate stamped by the university, which proves when I will graduate. I need four copies but only one needs to be an original. I go to the student reception desk to ask for one.)

Me: “Hi! I’d like a Student Status Certificate, please.”

Receptionist: “Okay, how many would you like?”

Me: “Um, just one, I guess. Then, I can photocopy it.”

Receptionist: “Are you sure? They’re free, so I can give you more than one.”

Me: “Oh, okay, then. Could I please have four?”

Receptionist: *laughs as if I’m a moron* “Four? I can’t give you that many!”

Me: “Okay… but you… Never mind. How many can I have, then?”

Receptionist: “Two.”

Me: “I guess I’ll have two, then, please.”
