I work in a call centre for Staples delivery. People call in when they want to place an order, make a return on a received order, or if they have a question about a product. The following conversation took place a little while ago.
Customer: I need a Canon one one zero.
(I proceed to search the catalogue for 'Canon 110' - I find a camera and a scanner)
Me: I found a camera and a scanner.
Customer: I think it's a laptop..
Me: Uh, no. I'm sorry, but Canon doesn't make laptops.
Customer: I need a Canon one one zero. I've ordered it from you before.
Me: Well, is it a scanner?
Customer: No. It's ink. For a Canon one one zero.
Me: Oh, you need an ink cartridge. Which printer do you have?
Customer: I have no idea. But I know it's a Canon one one zero.
Me: I'm sorry, but there is no Canon 110 printer. I'm showing a Canon iP100 ink cartridge on your most recent order. Is that the printer you have?
Customer: I have no idea. It's a Canon one one zero.
Me: I'm sorry, but that product does not exist.
(Customer hangs up)
