VOICE MAILBOX

At what point do you suppose voicemail will stop instructing us on what it is and how to use it?

You know, You have reached the voice mailbox of number FIVE. OH. THREE. THREE. THREE. THREE. TWO. OH. MY. GOD. The cellular customer you are trying to reach is not available. To leave a message, press one, or just wait for the tone; to send a numeric page, press two; to leave a callback number, press three; to listen to your message, press four; to twist the tips of your nerves into tiny raw knots, press five; to accelerate your own inevitable decline, press six; to squander the last of your anytime minutes, when you are finished recording, hang up, or press pound for more options.
Pause.
Beep.

Thanks, but after ten years or whatever, I THINK WE'VE GOT IT.

they do this for a very specific reason: so that they can charge you for a longer call. dastardly, no?
