The new low

Today I picked up the phone to hear silence. After I tentatively said 'Hello?' a few times, I heard a beeping noise.

I bet you know what come next.

A mechanical voice informs me that 'he' is calling from Rogers Wireless services and wants to make sure I'm aware that if I switch to them I get Free Minute Money, or some such, vaguely Happy-meal-esque promotions. I immediately hung up, but the sheer disrespect is astounding. I mean, interrupting me by having a person phone me is bad enough, but that's one thing. At least I can derive a strange, perverse pleasure out of tormenting the telemarketers. To have a machine do it takes all the fun out of it.
