"Hey, would you like a plunger for your house?"
"No, thanks, we can't use a plunger in this house."
"What? Don't you have a toilet?"
"Yes. Our toilet can use a plunger."
"Don't you keep the toilet in your house?"
"No. There's only a toilet in the bathroom."

"No, it's on the first floor of the house."
"So there IS a toilet in your house?"
"No. The toilet is specific to the bathroom."
"So you have a toilet in your bathroom."
"So your bathroom can use a plunger."
"And that bathroom is in your house."
"But your house does not
have a toilet and can't
use a plunger."
[To steal a line: any reasonable customer would conclude at that point that his interlocutor was either crazy or following some too-clever-by-half legal advice.]
