Conversation with my internet provider tech guy while waiting for the lights to light up on the modem:
IPTG: (in deadpan bored teenage boy voice) Is that your mom laughing in the background?
IPTG: Were you surprised I could hear her?
C: No, we're pretty loud laughers in this family.
IPTG: Oh... do you have room to adopt another person?
C: Umm...... We're pretty full up.....
IPTG: How many brothers and sisters do you have?
C: I have a brother
IPTG: Is he older or younger?
C: He's two years older.
IPTG: Oh. I guess that's alright then. ... I have two sisters. They're 10 and 12.
C: Oh, I am sorry to hear that.
C: .... Well, umm... The light is still just blinking .....
