You wouldn't have been lying to the CSR. You are giving them a fake number, and they know it. It is a "placekeeper". An invalid piece of data that will fall through the cracks. They told you to make something up; that's all you had to do. You could explain this concept to a youngster, if you had one with you. But you didn't.
