Operator

“Operator, how may I direct your call?”

“Hello?” What is this?

“Operator, how may I direct your call?”

“What’s going on, who is this?”

“I’m the operator. How may I direct your call?”

“Um.” Mind is blank. Who was I calling?

“Sir, if you’d like to reach someone, please let me know how I can direct your call.”

“Is this a joke? What happened to my phone?”

“I’m sorry, sir. You sound like you are a little confused. Perhaps you’d like to talk to an account representative?”

“Um, sure. I’d like to talk to an account representative about getting my regular phone service back.”

“One moment please while I direct your call. Thank you for using Ma Bell.”

Ma Bell? Wasn’t that, like, the 1980’s or something? 60’s? 30’s? Just how far back did I slip last night?
