Last Time I Checked, The Borg Haven’t Assimilated Me Yet

, , , , , | Right | December 9, 2022

I take a call on our helpline. We don’t have any automated options; callers come straight through to an actual person.

Me: “Thank you for calling [Company] helpline. How may I help you?”

Caller: “Speak to an agent!”

Me: “I am an agent, ma’am.”

Caller: “I said I want to speak to an agent!”

Me: “Ma’am, I am not an automated service. I am an agent. I can help you with your query.”

Caller: “But you sound like a robot! You just said ‘query!’ That’s, like, not a word a person would say.”

Me: “…What is your reason for calling, ma’am?”

Caller: “Are you sure you’re not a robot?”

Me: “Not since the last time I checked.”

Caller: “When was the last time you checked?”

Me: “…I’ll just transfer you to a manager.”

Caller: “Finally! These robots are getting stupider, I swear…”
