(Phone rings)

Telephonist: Good morning, “Cracky Bank Ltd” how can I help

you?

Paul: Oh good morning. I’d like to do a bank transfer, please.

Telephonist: Very well, can I have your bank account number please?

Paul: Yes, it’s 986 - 254 - 512

Telephonist: And your PIN number.

Paul: 2648

Telephonist: OK. Do you have a “Hotline Bank Card” to hand?

Paul: Yes.

Telephonist: Good. Could you give me the number for the

coordinates “A54”.

Paul: Yes, that’s 34.

Telephonist:OK, thank you very much Mr Spencer. What was it that you wanted to do?

Paul: A bank transfer.

Telephonist: (hysterical laughter)

Paul: I beg your pardon?

Telephonist:Nothing - erm, from which account will you be making the transfer? (more laughter)

Paul: From my current account. Excuse me, are you talking to someone else?

Telephonist: No.

Paul:I’m sure I can hear someone else there.

Telephonist:No, it must be a crossed line. Anyway, could you give me the account number of the bank you’d like to make the transfer to?

Paul: Yes, the sort code is 30 91 23 and the account number is (more laughter) 3333 4523 (more laughter) 6478 (more laughter). Did you hear that right?

Telephonist:Yes. I’ll just read it back to you (more laughter). 30 91 26…

Paul: No, no, it’s 23.

Telephonist:Oh, right (more laughter), 23, yes, that’s it, sorry. So, once again, the sort code is 30 91 23 and the account number is (more laughter) 3333 46…

Paul: No, no, it’s a “5”, it’s “45” not “46”. I’m sorry but is there something wrong? You seem to be laughing a lot, and you don’t seem to be paying attention...

Telephonist: (more laughter) Oh, sorry, what were you saying?

Paul: Nothing, I think I’ll phone back later when you aren’t so busy.

Telephonist: Yes, of course (hysterical laughter). Bye.

(more hysterical laughter)
