Broker:  please have them call me and I will explain it to the husband; women don’t understand these things very well and just get flustered – they just don’t have a very good head for these sorts of things

 Me:  I will and I will also try to not be offended by what you just said

 Broker:  I was actually referring to my wife

Me:  and I am sure she would appreciate that

seriously?  that conversation happened a half hour ago
