Coworker: *on phone* “[Store], photo and media department. How may I help you?”

Customer: “Hi, do you have a book on steaks?”

Coworker: “What’s the title of the book you’re looking for?”

Customer: “I don’t know. It’s a specific book, though.”

Coworker: “All right. Let me look.” *after searching for a while* “Looks like we don’t have any books on steak.”

Coworker: “I’ll look it up for you.”
