number's 494-2366. Your office number over at Lincoln Insurance is 745-2302 and
your cell number's 266-2566. And, it looks like you're calling from home, is
that correct, sir?"
Customer: "Huh? Yeah, I'm at home.
Where d'ya get all this information?"
wired into the system, sir."
Customer: (Sighs) "Oh, well, I'd
like to order a couple of your All-Meat Special pizzas..."
