Fish: Can I help you?
Accountant: "I need to run a trial balance report."
Fish: Run the General Ledger Report
Accountant: "I tried that. It prints the detail of all transactions for every account. I want that report in summary."
Fish: Did you hit the summary button?
Accountant: "No, what's that do?"
