Me: Hello, Ed speaking. May I help you?
Him: Yes, did you get the labtop in I sent you?
Me: Huh? Who is this?
Him: It’s me! Chris.
Him: Yeah, Chris. I sent you my labtop last week. I broke the screen. Did you get it in yet?
Me: I’m sorry…did you say “labtop”?
Him: Yeah. I sent my labtop and the confirmation says it was signed for. Do you have it?
Me: Yes, but it’s called a lap-top. Not lab-top.
Him: Really? Are you sure?
Me: Well, 20-plus years in IT, multiple IT certifications, college level course…yeah, pretty sure.
Him: Well, we all call them labtops here on the west coast. I think they are just called laptops in the midwest.
Me: *facepalm* Okay…whatever…..
Somedays it’s just not worth the fight…
