The Ernestine Experience

“A gracious hello”

“How may I, in all humble servitude, be of assistance?”

“$12.50 a month doesn’t buy perfection”

“Look it up yourself, I’ve got better things to do”

“Here at the Phone Company, we serve all kinds of people; from President’s and Kings to the scum of the earth…”

“You’ve angered me and when you anger me you anger me and all the power necessary to tie up your lines for the next fifty years!”

“Have I reached the party to whom I am speaking?”

“We’re the phone company. We don’t care, we don’t have to.”
