Puzzlin' Apple Dance

The other day my boss came over and asked me what "apple dance" is.

I said I didn't understand what she was referring to, and she said that she had just gotten off the phone with Johanna who had called her because I'd told her to provide some apple dance.

I said that I hadn't spoken with anyone named Johanna, and it took several minutes and a phone call to Johanna to figure out that I'd actually spoken to her assistant, and that the assistant had misheard the word "evidence".

This is almost as ridiculous as the time the Dispute Resolution Department received a letter addressed to the "Disappeared Evolution Department."

Look, if something doesn't sound right, ask for clarification. I know that the world of financial services can be difficult to understand, but there's a huge difference between impenetrably verbose and just plain silly.
