Barry found a nice office. He bought some new furniture and moved in. he had only been there for e few hours when he heard someone coming toward the door of his office.
"It must be my first customer" Barry thought. He quickly picked up the telephone and pretended to be very busy answering an important call from someone in New York who wanted to buy a big and expensive house in the country.
Flustered but showing off only as one can do Barry continued to play the important businessman and wanted to make a keen impression.
The man knocked at the door while this was going on. He came in and waited politely for Barry to finish his conversation on the phone. Barry stayed on the phone for a few minutes while turning to the potential customer to say "one moment sir, its a very important call.
Barry continued as if he was talking to the king of England.
Barry finally finished his call excitedly ready to make potentially his first big sale.
"How can i help you sir on this fine day"
Hi well this is awkward The man said to Barry;
Barry looking confused asks "why"
"I am from the telephone company and I was sent here to connect your telephone"
