Junk Call Blowoff

As I settled in after coming home from work, the phone rang. I picked it up, and:

Robot Voice: This is an important announcement about your automobile warranty. This is your final courtesy call before your vehicle is reclassified....

(The robot apparently has a different definition of "final" that us meatbrains, inasmuch as this is approximately the two hundredth such call I have received.)

Robot Voice, continued: Please press "1" to be connected to a customer service representative.

An idea occurs to me, and I press "1". Apparently, this does mean the same thing to robots and meatbrains, since it works as advertised.

Customer Service Drone: Please state the name and model year of your vehicle.

Me: 1990 Trabant.

Would you believe that he hung up on me?
