My Job

*ring, ring*

"Weber State Housing, this is Livia, how may I help you?"
"Hi, how many pool tables do you have?"
"Well, Housing has one, and Billiards has the rest in the lobby."
"Can you look up how many pool tables there are, total?"
"Yes, please hold while I go out to the lobby and count them."
..........
"Thank you for holding. There are 9 tables, 1 belongs to Housing and the rest belong to Billiards."
"Um, what's the difference?"
"Well, Housing owns 1 table. Billiards owns 8 tables."
"What do you mean?"
*sigh*
"The Billiards department is renting the Housing lobby, and they have moved 8 of their own tables into our lobby. They own 8 of the 9 tables in the Housing lobby. They operate 8 out of 9 tables. Housing operates 1 out of 9 tables."
"Oh, great. Um, do you have the number for Billiards?"
"No, I'm afraid that the Directory I have from 2002 does not list a number for Billiards."
"Oh really? Um, okay. Thanks."

"Weber State Housing, this is Livia, how may I help you?"
"ummm... Hi. Do you have any duct tape?"
"Excuse me?"
"Yeah, um I was wondering if you have any duct tape?"
"No, I'm sorry, I don't have any duct tape in the Housing Office."
"Oh, okay, it was random, thanks."
