I didn't make this up-I swear

Today I called a courier service to enquire about a package.The person who answered the telephone asked me if I had a tracking number to aid in its location.Since I did not have the number with me I told her I would call back in a couple minutes after I had obtained it.

About 15 minutes later I made another call and relayed the tracking number.When I was finished the lady said the number had one digit too many .So instead of going through the trouble of double checking the number I suggested that she delete one of the twos and see if it would work.The number read something like this-70853222284 so I sorta figured maybe I had a two too many.

To my great surprise she asked me which of the two's she should subtract.A bit taken aback for words I managed to blurt out that it really didn't matter which one she left out.Somehow,my response given in a pleasant enough manner was apparently offensive to her because in a ice cold manner she demanded my telephone # and informed me she would call me.Realising that she was not going to give me priority I called back in about an hour's time with the corrected number.This time she was so pleasant leaving me to surmise that it was a result of not having to decide which of the twos to leave out.

Enjoy the weekend.
