I did not recognize the number on the caller ID but the name on the readout was our health insurance company. So I answered. The following is a verbatim account of my brief conversation with one of their automated systems (Well except for blanking out the name to protect the inept):
Voice: Hello, this is Blank Insurance calling for Ranger. Is this Ranger?
Voice: Okay, would you be willing to take a message?
Me: This is Ranger speaking.
Voice: All right. Thank you, anyway. Goodbye.
Then the call disconnected. I wonder if they even bothered to beta-test the voice recognition software. What do you want to bet it calls again? Perhaps I'll meow into the phone when the voice asks if this is Ranger. See what happens.
Heh . . .
