How many is a couple?

Me: "Hello, I'd like a cab in Finchley central please"
Taxi Operator: "Certainly sir, how many people"
Me: "One"
Taxi Operator: "Any luggage?"
Me: "Yes, one suitcase and a couple of boxes."
Taxi Operator: "How many is a couple?"
Me: "???... Two boxes."
Taxi Operator: "Thank you. The taxi will be there in 15 minutes."
Me: "Thank you."

Seriously though... when is a couple NOT two?
