And next time they call you should request a technician because the Hal 9000 is not functioning properly. Suggest they could send Mr. Bradbury (or even better, Arthur C. Clark) to analyze the problem.

They did the usual song and dance asking for the model number on the copier in the office. I boldly stated it's a Hal-9000.  The telemarketer didn't understand or compute what I was saying.  So she asked again and I stated Hal-9000.  She then stated she had a Hal-9000 toner order that was cancelled in our area and who did our purchasing?  I stated Ray Bradbury and hung up.  Now wouldn't it be cool if everyone responded in the same fashion?
