Funniest phone call ever, tape machines

i phoned a rental company, who does this since more than 30 years, cause i wanted to get a 16 track 2"
i phoned with the boss, not a joung guy with no experience (nothing against young guys...)
they don´t have this anymore...ok

- why do you want to get tape?

me: i like the sound

- why?

me: bla bla......

- mmh, okay, what are your converters?

me: alphalink, ua2192

- mmh, ok, let´s see.... i think you need RME converters!

Funny too ....

A customer once called me.

We want to use your master tape recorder!

OK what do you want to do with it.

Does it runs on different speeds?

YES it does.

Can we vary the speed for tape like slow down effects.

Yes you can get this in the cutting mode!

I think this is not the right place for what we want!!
