we should have caller id

Posted in: General

Phone rings at work.
“Hello!” I say. And give the usual greeting.
“Yes, it’s Allan …. from the Academy here. I was wondering if you could help me?”
“Oh, hello Adolf” I reply. “What can we do for you?”
“Adolf?” he says.
“Did I say ‘Adolf’?”
“I think you did.”
“I’m not sure what we can do for you,” I manage to squeak out before collapsing in fit of laughter.
Confusion ensues.
I’m not sure who I was expecting on the phone. I’m not sure what help we, as history teachers, could have provided.
But I’m damn sure I’m not consuming a really big slab of poppy seed cake and still expect self to answer phone in coherent fashion in future.
