In another thread we had a loooong talk about the appropriate verbs to describe a conversation. Well, today I received a phone call from a tech supply store where my son ordered some RAM chips (DDR4 in 16GB sticks, if you must know). I told the caller my son was asleep before I knew what it was about. I offered to pass on a message and when he said it was about an order I asked if it was about the computer parts and he agreed it was. He explained the order will be delayed as their bulk supplier is out of stock and the new shipment won't be in until the end of the month. He went on to explain the RAM was in very high demand. I then told him about them being new 16 GB stick and given the option of only 4 sticks of 8 GB or 4 sticks of 16 GB, which would you buy? Well, I could hear the laughter in his voice when he replied with "Sixteen gig, of course." I then asked since they were out of the black case chips did they have them in the red case (the chips come in two colours to co-ordinate with the motherboards), again I could hear the laughter in his voice when he replied, "Naturally both colours are out of stock."
Well, considering the discussion in another thread about words used to describe talking, when this happened this afternoon the thread and the talk about people laughing while talking went through my mind, so I had to mention it does happen in real life.
