Jennifer Marlowe: Mr. Craven I would like to ask you a question about the phone company.

Wayne Craven: Well that's what I'm here for, fire away.

Jennifer Marlowe: You know the phone company won't give you a specific time when they'll come to install your phone. You have to wait all day long. Like most people, I work and can't take the whole day off.

Wayne Craven: Uh-Hunh.

Jennifer Marlowe: So Saturday is the only day I'll be here. But because so many other people have the same problem, you can wait up to two, three weeks or more for service.

Wayne Craven: That's correct.

Jennifer Marlowe: Could you tell me why that is?

Wayne Craven: Of course, it's like that because we don't have any competition.
