My wife recently found two plastic HP gift cards in our desk drawer. We have no idea when or where we got them, and really didn't know what they were worth. So I called the 800 number on the back of the card to get some information.
Well after about 3 long minutes of trying to explain to the lady that I only wanted to find out what they were worth (they are good for $10 each for HP products) and that I didn't want to purchase anything at this time, she asked me for my Zip code. After I told her she wanted to know what state I was in. I said Montana, but right now I feel as though I'm in the State of Confusion.
After about 30 seconds of silence she said, " I'm sorry sir, but I don't show that State in our data base. What is the Zip code ?" I started to laugh and asked her if she was joking. She said no but she was still checking. I asked her where she was and she replied the Philippines.
I thanked her for her time and said goodbye.
