A dealer calls in, having problems with the interrupt jumpers on a bus mouse card. After I informed this person that jumper information is on page 9 of the Mouse User's Guide, and gave the proper jumper setting, the dealer said: "Can you hold on while I give it a try?"
The telephone clicked against the desk on the other end as the receiver was set down. The following conversation ensued:
"He's right. It is on page 9."
"I told you to look in the book."
"I know, I know. He's still on the line. You talk to him."
"I didn't call him. I didn't screw up. You talk to him."
"Why don't you just hang it up. Maybe he won't notice."
Cluck. Click. Buzz (dial tone).
