Ordering pizza in 2008


Operator:"Thank you for calling Pizza Hut. May I have your national ID number?"
Customer:"Hi, I'd like to place an order."
Operator:"I must have your NIDN first, sir?"
Customer: "My National ID Number, yeah, hold on, eh, it's 6102049998-45-54610."
Operator:"Thank you, Mr. Sheehan. I see you live at 1742 Meadowland Drive, and the phone number's 494-2366. Your office number over at Lincoln Insurance is 745-2302 and your
cell number's 266-2566. Email address is Which number are you calling from, sir?"
Customer:"Huh? I'm at home. Where d'ya get all this information?"
Operator: "We're wired into the HSS, sir."
Customer: "The HSS, what is that?"
Operator:"We're wired into the Homeland Security System, sir. This will add only 15 seconds to your ordering time"
Customer:(Sighs) "Oh, well, I'd like to order a couple of your All-Meat Special pizzas."
Operator:"I don't think that's a good idea, sir."
Customer:"Whaddya mean?"
Operator:"Sir, your medical records and commode sensors indicate that you've got very high blood pressure and extremely high cholesterol. Your National Health Care provider won't allow such an unhealthy choice."
Customer:"What?!?! What do you recommend, then?"
Operator:"You might try our low-fat Soybean Pizza. I'm sure you'll like it."
Customer:"What makes you think I'd like something like that?"
Operator:"Well, you checked out 'Gourmet Soybean Recipes' from your local library last week, sir. That's why I made the suggestion."
Customer:"All right, all right. Give me two family-sized ones, then."
Operator:"That should be plenty for you, your wife and four kids, and your 2 dogs can finish the crusts, sir. Your total is $49.99."
Customer:"Lemme give you my credit card number."
Operator:"I'm sorry sir, but I'm afraid you'll have to pay in cash. Your credit card balance is over its limit."
Customer:"I'll run over to the ATM and get some cash before your driver gets here."
Operator:"That won't work either, sir. Your checking account's overdrawn also."
Customer:"Never mind! Just send the pizzas. I'll have the cash ready. How long will it take?"
Operator:"We're running a little behind, sir. It'll be about 45 minutes, sir. If you're in a hurry you might want to pick 'em up while you're out getting the cash, but then, carrying pizza's on a motorcycle can be a little awkward."
Customer:"Wait! How do you know I ride a scooter?"
Operator:"It says here you're in arrears on your car payments, so your car got repo'ed. But your Harley's paid for and you just filled the tank yesterday."
Customer:Well I'll be a "@#%/$@&?#!"
Operator:"I'd advise watching your language, sir. You've already got a July 4, 2006 conviction for cussing out a cop and another one I see here on September for contempt at your hearing for cussing at a judge. Oh yes, I see here that you just got out from a 90 day stay in the State Correctional Facility. Is this your first pizza since your return to society?"
Operator:"Will there be anything else, sir?"
Customer:"Yes, I have a coupon for a free 2 liter of Coke."
Operator:"I'm sorry sir, but our ad's exclusionary clause prevents us from offering free soda to diabetics. The New Constitution prohibits this. Thank you for calling Pizza Hut."
