Conversation with a Vendor

Me: I need to get a quote for encapsulating trade-show graphics with a total width of 70 inches at 50 inches of height.

Vendor: Hmm, that's not within our standard size so I'll have Mr. So and So work up a quote and give you a call.

Me: Thanks.

Vendor: Do we have your number?

Me: Yes, but my direct line is 704-555...

Vendor: Wait, wait, let me get a Crayon....

Me: (speechless)

Well, as long as my message is written in maize or raw umber—now retired colors—I'll be a happy camper.
