Who Is Having The Fun Here?

What are you doing?

'Give me a few seconds.
Someone has me on hold.'

On hold?

'Yes.
I've been waiting for a couple of minutes,
For someone to explain to me...
Why they believe I am not qualified.'

Qualified?
To do what?

'Qualified to have intelligence.
Because of my...
Well,
You know...
The obvious.'

Why don't you hang up the telephone?
You don't have to prove that to anyone.

'I know this.
I just want to know how long it takes them,
To respond with an answer.'

But...
Don't you know what that response will be?

'Of course I do.
But who is having the fun here? '

Checkmate!
I suggest you concentrate on the game.
It is no fun beating you when you are distracted.

'Gee...
I didn't realize they had me on hold that long.
You are right.
I should hang up before I prove my stupidity.'

Naw!
You?
You're too intelligent.
