Yesterday, AGAIN!, we lost our phone service - now that means I have to deal with Emily! Does everyone know who Emily is? She's the automated assistant from Bell Canada. And...I must confess I hate Emily. She's obnoxious! When she can't hear your answers she actually takes on a voice with attitude. Of all the voice mail systems I've ever encountered Emily has got to take the cake. Since I've spoken so frequently to Emily in that past few weeks I know the answers I'm supposed to give - so I try to shorten the length of my interaction with her to save me tons of frustration. This leads me to growl out commands - RESIDENTIAL, HOME SERVICE, REPAIR. When I finally get to speak to a living human being - they always spout off their ID number - now what good is that? Will I ever be able to locate that particular person again? Not likely since they are probably spread out over this vast country of ours. I suppose the ID number is useful if they are rude or whatever - then you could report them, right? But here's what I want to know - what is Emily's ID number because that chick needs to be fired!
More knitting news later.
