CUSTOMER: What kind of connection would this need?
????: We're talking the upper levels here, so I wouldn't try anything less than 1200 bits per second.
CUSTOMER: Oh, I'm still chugging along with 300...
CUSTOMER: I still have to press the phone to the foam speakers and everything.
????: Oh? If you need it, we offer discounts on slightly withered, but still very capable modems.
????: It's part of a corporate initiative to help bring people off older modems and into the future. To help things trickle down, as it were.
CUSTOMER: Trickle down, hm? What a load of guff.
CUSTOMER: Why did we ever let an actor be president?
????: Ehehe, good question.
