I don't care who you call, any business phone, from your hometown doctor to a very large book vendor a thousand miles away, is rigged with this welcome message.
Quite frankly, I miss the point. Do I know the menu options of all the businesses I call well enough to hastily start pushing buttons? Of course not. So, I'm going to listen to the choices. I would even listen to them without being told.
But since it seems everyone's doin' it, I think I'll begin classes tomorrow like this...
Please listen carefully as today the boys will get to check out books first.
