In Which I Complain About Automated Phone Systems

Why is it that automated phone systems say things like:

"Input your 16-digit code and then press the pound key."

Shouldn't they just know when you hit the 16th button that this is, indeed, the entire code? Can't these robots count?

Stupid robots.


  1. maybe if you messed up on the 3rd digit, you can just press pound and start over again ... instead of typing the rest of the 13 digits in your phone

  2. Ken-- Please don't confuse my diatribe with all of your "logic" and "good sense."
