Me: May I get the system number for the equipment you are calling about please?
Me: I’m sorry, but system numbers are only 4 digits long.
Caller: Oh. Well, this is an injector not a scanner, so it doesn’t have a system number. The number I gave you is the serial number.
WIDTS: OK, I’ll just catalog your error under “PEBCAK” and advise you to read the user’s manual, alrighty?
