Yesterday I was trying to fix dinner frantically when my phone rang. I don't get very many phone calls on my blackberry so I dashed to answer it. And I got a machine saying this to me:
"Hello! This is a very important call. Please hold for the next available customer representative to answer your call. Do not hang up. This is a very important call."
So this pissed me off at so many levels.
- I am on the do not call list. Why are you calling me?
- I need to watch the American Idol in 2 minutes. Go away. I don't even talk to my loved ones during this time.
- If this was such an important call, why is a machine calling me? And then putting me on hold? Surely if it was important, a human being would call me. Ugh. I hate deception.
- What the heck does the word important mean? The word important is used so loosely that it has lost its significance. Important! Important! Important!!!! Since when does a machine decide what is important to ME. Surely the world should know that watching American Idol is more important than anything else. The earth could stop spinning but I must watch American Idol before I tackle that important issue.
- Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!
I hung up and turned off the ringer. And watched American Idol.
PS: Love the new judge! Wish Paula would drink some more before the show. Love drunk Paula! Simon is going to be in history for being the king of one liners. He is awesome! Randy has just become pathetic. He is so cruel to participants. He laughs at them and then tried to cover his face with a piece of paper. Not nice. Not classy. At least Simon shows a little respect and is direct. He's not passive aggressive. Randy is really annoying me.
