This is an actual phone conversation that took place while I was filling in for a receptionist at the switchboard of a large local company last week:

Caller: Hey! Can I speak ta Karla?

Me: Do you have a last name sir?

Caller: Um...yea...course I gotta last name!

Me: Ok...could you please tell me the last name so I can connect you?

Caller: want my last name?

Me: No sir...I need Karla's last name.

Caller: Oh! I gotcha! It's (sounded like...) Farce

Me: **Looking up last name...Farce...Farse...Force...Forse...** Sir...could you please spell the last name?

Caller: What...mine?

Me: No sir...I need you to please spell Karla's last name so I can connect you to her.

Caller: Oh...F.e.r.r.i.s...Farce!

Me: **to myself..."of course!"** Thank you moment please.

A co-worker was standing by listening to this and was rolling me! 'Course...I was laughing too...

Hey Sunny! Say Hi To Canu for me! I have an axe I have to show him! Anyway, I lived in Charlotte for about 3 months and was actually staying in the house my friend was building in a nice new area right by I 77. I went to the post office to get a package I knew was to arrive that day! The gentleman came up to me very slowly and said, Hi T h e r e..... N e e d S o m e t h i n g? Uh Yeah? I came to pick up a package from "Blah Blah" He said, O H Y E A H ! I K N O W I T C A M E. Now he's walking around in circles in the back and finally after 10 minutes say's I' l l L o o k F o r i t l a t e r s o c o m e b a c k t o m o r r o w o k a y? Uh No! I need it today! I came back three hous later....... I waited till tomorrow. I swear it was like Floyd The Barber from Andy Of Mayberry or The Andy Griffith Show!
