Let Me Peer into my Crystal Ball

me: Good Afternoon, Engineering Firm.
Little Old Lady: Yes, can you hold on for a minute?
me, thinking ‘Lady, you called me…’: Sure.
LOL: Um, someone from Engineering Firm just called here.
me: Okay.
LOL: Do you know who that could have been?
me: Not really no…
LOL: Can you hold on for a moment?
me: Sure.

LOM: Hello?
me: Hi.  This is Stephanie with Engineering Firm.

me: Do you know who would have called you?
LOM: Um, how about Jones [referring to a last name]?  Is Jones there?
me: Who shall I say is calling?
LOM, exasperated: Harry.
me: One moment while I see if he is available.
