Me: How do you like working for TD Ameritrade?
Ted: Frankly, I can't imagine myself working anyplace else. Nothing is more satisfying than providing TD AMERITRADE clients with the answers they need.
Me: That answer sounds a little too diplomatic, how do you really feel?
Ted: I would love to help you, but I'm not sure I understand your question. Please try rewording your question.
Me: Right. Well, since we aren't gaining any progress in that direction, what's the formula for cocacola?
Ted: We offer a Help Center with a Formula Building tool, a Quick-Start guide, a User Manual, and a Formula and Syntax guide to help you to get the most out of the StrategyDesk tool. To access the Help Center, click "Help" and then "StrategyDesk Help Center."
Me: ...and what are the eleven herbs and spices in kentucky fried chicken?
Ted: Here in Omaha, we really like our steaks.
Me: What will be the highest and lowest points of trading for the S&P500 on Tuesday March 4, 2009
