The phrase used by help desk, retail, and other
customer service workers all across America when they'd like to tell
the person they are speaking to to sit on a large object and spin, but enjoy maintaining an income.
Customer: I can't get onto the internet.
Help Desk: Okay, can you please check to make sure the cables are securely connected from
the wall to the modem?
Customer: I can't see.
Help Desk: Why not.
Custoemr: The power
Help Desk: Oh, unfortunately, you're not going
to be able to connect while the power
is out. Call back if you need anything. Have a nice day.
