Caller: “I see. So, what about the one that I’m using right now?”

Caller: “My bong isn’t working!”

Me: “I’m not sure what you mean, ma’am. Could you explain what your problem is?”

Caller: “I told you! My bong is broken!”

Me: “Your bong, ma’am?”

Caller: “Yes the bong that goes into the computer for my Internet!”

Me: “Oh, do you mean your ‘dongle’?”

Caller: “Yes! That thing!”
