If your name's not down

Helpdesk: "Goodmorning, IT helpdesk."

Dave: "Hi, this is Dave from IT. I'm still having problems logging into the mainframe this morning."

Helpdesk: "Yes, were having some technical problems at the moment."

Dave: "Have they found out what the problem is yet?"

Helpdesk: "Well, it seems that anyone who's surname begins with either G or I has had their access permanently revoked."

Dave: "...anyone who's surname begins with G..."

Helpdesk: "...or I, yes. What was your surname again?"
