Awkward Phone Conversation

So I called up the plumber this morning to come back and fix what they didn't fix, because the tank shouldn't be refilling itself every 10 mins...Anyway, after describing what the problem was and is, this is what went down:

Lady on the other end of the line, referring to the plumbers that had been here: "What did they look like?"
Me (trying to recall, because it was too early in the morning for me to remember): umm
Lady: "I'm sure they were negro."
Me (startled, looking at invoice): Oh, their names were ____ and ____.

That happened.
