Receptionist picks up the phone "ACME Auto Body. Grace speaking"
Voice says "Yeah, how much will it cost to fix my fender?"
A raucous laugh emits from the receptionist's end. "$47,623.14"
"WHAT?" the voice screams.
"Well, that's our standard answer for someone who calls in and asks
for quote without giving the brand or model of car, or telling us
which fender is dented, whether any other damage is evident, if it's a
standard or pearl paint, with or without pinstriping and flames. It's
something we simply can't do over the phone, and certainly not without
a bit more information."
"Oh." the voice says, prior to the click of reality.
And did you mean UK 220v or US 240vac, hmmm?
