Caller: I have some questions about your upcoming conference.
Me: OK, I’ll need to have someone call you back to answer your questions. May I get your name please?
Caller: Can’t you help me?
Me: If your questions are along the lines of my school courses this semester, “Morons: How to dumb yourself down to their level” and “Paying Attention: Harder than it seems, apparently” then yes, I can.
