Crazy Conversation with a Telephone Operator
TO = telephone operator
Self = myself speaking
TO: You have just reached Bedlam Associates Incorporations Ltd.
Our telephone number is 999999ad infinitum but a 9 is enough.
If you want to hear this message in English, please press 1
If you prefer any other language please press 2.
Self: I press 1.
TO: Good job, Sir. I only know English.
TO: How can I help you Sir?
Self: I have a problem with my Visa credit card.
TO: You have to chose from our menu:
Press 1 if you lost your card.
Press 2 if you have now found your card.
Press 3 if you found a card belonging to some one else.
Press 4 in case you use this card which does not belong to you.
Press 5 for any other question.
Self: I press 5
TO: So what do you want?
Self: I went to a public ATM and inserted my card.
TO: Did you insert it properly? If not press 1. If yes press 2.
Self: (Pressing 2) I’m not a cretin you know.
TO: So what’s the problem, SIR.
Self: I inserted my secret pin number…
TO: Was it the correct pin?
Self: Of course (mumbling). I then saw the amount of money
available to me. So I pressed 500. But I only got 100.
TO: Press 1 if you want a receipt. My records show you pressed
Self: I’m not blind, you know. I pressed 500.
TO: You have only one option. Go to the nearest bank,
Goodbye Sir. Come again soon.
Although this conversation is fictions, it did happen to me. Only the TO was quite nice about it.
