EMAILER
(To Technician) I’m so happy you answered the phone. I’ve been on the line for two hours, listening to bad music.

TECHNICIAN
(With a foreign accent) How can I help you, sir?

EMAILER
I’m having trouble with my email. I can send, but I can’t receive.

TECHNICIAN
Have you tried entering your key?

EMAILER
What’s a key?

TECHNICIAN
That’s the code you receive after you enter your password.

EMAILER
I haven’t entered my password.

TECHNICIAN
No wonder you can’t access your email.

EMAILER
I can’t access my password either. That’s why I am calling.

TECHNICIAN
Well, let’s see if we can help you with that. Do you know about Bomgar?

EMAILER
Of course I know. I was in the Air Force Reserve.

TECHNICIAN
No, not Bomber. Bomgar!

EMAILER
Ah…. No.

TECHNICIAN
It’s the way I can enter your computer.

EMAILER
Oh, I see.

TECHNICIAN
First, enter your password.

EMAILER
I just told you I have lost my password.

TECHNICIAN
But I just told you I need your password to recover your password.

EMAILER
Where are you speaking to me from?

TECHNICIAN
Kuala Lampur.

EMAILER
Would it help if I got my passport and travelled to Kuala Lampur for my password?

TECHNICIAN
How else can I help you, sir?

EMAILER
By calling me an ambulance. I’m having a heart attack.

TECHNICIAN
That you will have to do by yourself, sir. It’s been a pleasure serving you. Goodbye, and please remember to call us again if you need any help.

EMAILER
(Holding his heart and dialing the phone) Hello, 911. I need help, please. It’s my heart.

911
We’d be delighted to help you sir. But first we will need your password.
