Automated Phone Menus + Barking = FUNNY

Yesterday mom needed to call her health insurance. She had to listen to a menu and push buttons to select what she needed.

Well, I was having none of that. I wanted attention!

I put my head on her knee and she had the gall to push it away!

Surely that must have been a mistake. I always get scritches when I put my head on mama’s knee.

So I put my head on her knee again.


I was appalled.

Now, I am a pretty quiet girl and rarely have to resort to barking but this was an emergency.


Apparently the automated system mom had been talking to picked up my bark because mom was very surprised to hear it confirm her birthday as 10-17-1902.


Mama is very old, but not 109 years old.

She had to back all the way out of the phone tree and re enter all the information.

It only serves her right.

Too back I couldn’t automatically bark her a proctologist appointment.

Her priorities are out of whack. Greyhound ear scritches should always take top priority!

Mommy still likes to use her corded land line phone for a lot of calls. I've found that if she isn't giving me the proper attention. placing your paw on the button cuts off the call. I've done it many times--sometimes when my aunt calls. I am far more important than my aunt anyway. LOL

My momma HATES those automated phone menues. It's hard for someone who is hearing impaired (my momma) to understand what is being said but she can usually muddle through it all the way to the end before something comes up that she just can't understand what is being said and BAM! she is disconnected and has to re-dial and try the whole thing again.

9 times out of ten she will finally be connected to a live person who can assist her but what a waste of everyone's time trying to get throught those automated systems.

Anyhow, you are much more important than a phone call!!!

...I had to stop laughing long enough to comment...
Yes indeed, I think you taught that mom a lesson!
