A serial number on an offical German personal ...

Me: May I get the system number for the equipment you are calling about please?

Caller: 27059

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?

*Actual caller handled by me while working for an answering service. Names & Identifying information have been changed. Bolded text is what I DESIRED to say…*
