Our telephone system here goes on automatic outside normal hours and, like many others, invites callers to dial the desired extension; "If you don't know your party's extension, but do know their (sic) name, spell it, last name first." So, I got a call from someone who will go unnamed, who told me, "Your super fancy telephone system really sucks!" Why? I inquired. "Well, I called the other evening, but I forgot your extension. I tried spelling your name, and nothing happened!" Really, I said. Did you start with my last name? "Of course, just the way the system told me to." Well, maybe you entered it too fast. "I tried three times, and very slowly: M A R Q . . ." Well, there isn't a Q on the dial. What key did you press for Q? --- Long pause --- "What do you mean, press keys?" After I stopped laughing, she'd hung up.
