i was on the phone with this friend of mine, she was at work. in the middle of our conversation, she puts me on hold. 5 seconds later she answers the phone. here's an account of the conversation:

f: who's speaking?
k: i think you know
f: (3 or 4 more guys names)?
k: no...it's me!
f: can i have your name please?
(i thought the caller had hung up before she could answer - happens to me all the time)
k: i forgot my name
f: i'm very sorry but i can't help you if you don't give me my name
k: but i forgot my name!
f: (another half dozen guy's names)
