I called my friend Wendie this afternoon. She must have already been on the phone because her voicemail picked up before the first ring.
I can’t remember all of her outgoing message, but I do remember how it ends. If you need to speak to someone at the assignment desk, “press zero and then pound on your phone.”
Pound on your phone! How cruel to the little telephone.
This is now the 21st century equivalent of, “Eat And Get Gas.”
