I just tried to make a long distance call to a travel agency (don’t ask me why I did that) and it went like this:
A = agent, D = me
A: XX (<- travel agency’s name)
*click* from the other side.
The above was preceded by an “automated” answering system and a mandatory advertisement of their $6xxx New Zealand deal good until January 31st and they’ll give you a limited quantity New Zealand travel map as a gift.
I know Vancouver may not be the most modern of places, but I thought long distance telephony is not something new? I really do not know who to blame for this, frankly.
