Me: Extension 123 please.
Reception: You know the extension!!??? You could have just entered that.
M: Sorry. May I speak to Mr. White please?
R: Yeah, I’m already having a busy morning… They gave you their extension? Why wouldn’t you just enter it!!!??
M: I’m on a rotary phone.
In my defence, it seemed like the shortest way for both me and her to go on our separate ways.
