a conversation i had today:

manager: i'm sorry, ma'am, but that feature only applies to wamu free checking accounts.

me: but i have a free checking account.

manager: yes, ma'am, but you don't have a wamu free checking account.

me: but... um, wait... i'm confused. my checking account is with you, wamu, and it's free.

manager: yes, ma'am.

me: wouldn't that make it a wamu free checking account?

manager: no, ma'am.

me: ???

Becks!

I had a similar one recently with my phone service provider:

Me: I need to activate my international calling.

Manager: I'm sorry sir, but you haven't had your phone for three months yet, you can't add that feature.

Me: I need to call London tomorrow or I won't get a job. What do i need to do to make that happen?

Manager: I'm sorry sir, but you haven't had your phone for three months yet, you can't add that feature.

Me: Let's say my mother was dying in London and I needed to call her tomorrow morning by 10:00, how could we make that work?

...Long pause

Manager: I'm sorry sir, but you haven't had your phone for three months yet, you can't add that feature.

wow
