$COW-ORKER: John, my phone’s not working. I was speaking to someone and it went dead.

Me: Is it plugged in?

$COW-ORKER: Of course it’s plugged in. I was speaking to someone on it!

Me: But is it plugged in?

$COW-ORKER: Well obviously it’s plugged in because I was able to make a call before it went dead!

Me: But is it currently plugged in?

$COW-ORKER: The phone is clearly faulty.

<I go and check>

Me: The phone isn’t plugged in.
