This afternoon as I found my eyelids protesting and winning to close, I was heavily startled by the sounds of a crying and ringing telephone.
As I was actually quite comfy laying there I had decided that I would not move from my escape from the cold weather that blasted its way through this morning and even got colder this afternoon.
I felt that if it was important then whomever it was calling can either leave a message or call me right back again.
Then I heard the automated system kick in and the phone call was coming from Time Warner Cable.
They were calling to tell me that a very serious matter needed to be settled and a change in my status of the account would soon be happening.
A.K.A.– I didn’t pay the bill this month. Ooops!! Slight oversight and mistake.
So up from the nest that I had created and I went straight to the website to pay the bill once in for all via online payment.
Until this evening after business hours where yet again Time Warner decided to call.
I didn’t wanna hear their message about how they were fixing to change the status in my account. I had already paid what was past due AND MORE!
So I answered and then hung up. They called back again.
I knew right then and there that this was another automated message and there was nobody LIVE to speak with.
So I answered a second time but was as silent as can be. I heard nothing. Not a sound. So I hung up. They called back again.
That’s when I gave it to them just to see if they would stop the recording and put on a live person.
When I answered I said “HEY-HO-COCK-BITE-SWEATER-VEST-PINEAPPLE-FARTS-CUM-DROPLETS-BIKINI-SHITS-KAYAKING-TOURIST-SEASON-BALL-SACK-GOT-MOISTURE-TURTLE-TURTLE-PUMPKIN-PIE!!!!!!!”
Whomever it is running the show with the switch board and handling the calls to customers over at Time Warner Cable LITERALLY waited until I had stopped talking before they flipped the switch and the automated message came over the telephone, thanking me for my earlier payment and have a nice day.
Okay, SOMEONE had to hear all that nonsense since they actually waited for me to run out of things to say.
And someone had to have been busting a gut from all of that. Because honestly, I never gave them a traditional telephone greeting.
