I don't understand people sometimes. One woman got offended about who-knows-what when I clarified which remote I needed her to focus on so I could fix it. She immediately escalated and demanded to speak to a male supervisor. Then she went on to tell him 'You know, I am so sick of your female techs!'
I wanted to clarify that I, personally, have no gender and if she did want to speak to a male I could accommodate; just call me Carl. We're close enough to the right moon phase for me to channel my male ego just fine.
