Guy and I just had a tedious phone conversation which went something like this:
Me: Did you get my email?
Guy: I don't know. Did you get my email?
Me: I'm not sure. How can I know if I didn't get something?
Guy: Well, my email was responding to your email. I was answering your question about the cole slaw.
Me: Oh yeah. I got that. But did you get my other email?
It went on like that for a while, until it finally occurred to me that we were having an incredibly pointless modern conversation. We had gotten stuck in a technology loop! It reminded me of this Mitchell and Webb skit.
