You know what I hate? When I dial a “1” out of habit when calling local. You know why I hate it? Because the telephone company can’t complete the call.
They say, “We’re sorry, it is not necessary to dial a 1 or 0 when calling this number. Will you please hang up and try your call again? Thank you.”
Then they hang up on you.
If it’s not necessary but superfluous, then why not connect me? Does the phone company not know who I’m trying to call?
