A Phone Call from Today

Customer: I need you to change the addresses of where our company receives its invoices.

Me: That will be no problem. What customer is this for?

Customer: Asinine Industries.*

Me: Asinine Industries? (Checks database) Oh, actually it doesn't look like we serve that customer any more.

Customer: What?

Me: Yeah, I'm pretty sure you guys went to a different service provider.

Customer: (Silence, until) Can you change them anyways?

Me: What?

Customer: Can you change the addresses anyways?

Me: (Brief pause) Sure. I'll get right on that.

Customer: Thanks.

*Name changed to protect my behind.

Oh sweet I've been looking for someone who does this kind of thing. I actually just need you to change my delivery address so I can get my Entertainment Weeklys again. Thanks.
