Pick up the phone
Wait for the Dial tone
Punch in the numbers
And wait i do for an answer

“We thank you for your valued call,
But no one’s here to help at all
Please pay attention
Without any apprehension”

“Beep” is all i hear
Making me wanna sneer
How many more calls do i make?
For there is only so much i can take!!

Feeling light-headed and dizzy
Hearing the same ol “All our operators are busy”
“Yea Right”!!Wish i could issue a few threats
“Please do call again”,the robot like voice repeats!!

Sigh!Is there ever an end to these automated responses!!
