Hilarious- from today's NYTimes/Metro Diary

Dear Diary:

As a membership liaison at the Jewish Community Center in Manhattan, I had the following phone call with a member:

Man on phone: “Hi, I want to sign my mom up for a class. Do you have yoga for older people?”
Me: “Yes, we have Gentle Yoga for Seniors.”
Man: “Where can I find this on the Web site?”
Me: “The easiest way is to type ‘gentle yoga’ in the search box.”
Man: “It’s not coming up.”
Me: “Are you at jccmanhattan.org?”
Man: “Yes, but it says zero results. Wait. Maybe I’m spelling it wrong.”
Me: “Yoga is y-o-g-a.”
Man: “No, no; gentle is g-e-n-t-i-l-e? Gentile yoga.”
Me (trying to keep a straight face): “It’s actually g-e-n-t-l-e.”
Man (totally serious): “Oh. Now I see it.”
