Good mornin’, sweetheart. Boise’ll be wakin’ up soon and that’s when our work starts. Wires go into the jacks. The left is incomin’ calls, the right is receivin’. You see a light, put it in the jack. Listen for their request and insert the wire. That button down there’s for you to listen in on a call if you need. Not sayin’ you can’t, but we ain’t payin’ you for that either.
