Today I tried to reach President Obama to wish him the best for 2013. Also, I had some ideas to cut government spending. As you might expect, I got an automated answering message. Here’s the message.
Press 1 if we can cut you a check for any reason
Press 2 to make a contribution to my eternal campaign fund
Press 3 to speak to someone about a labor union issue
Press 4 to speak to someone about an environmental issue
Press 5 to talk to someone about raising taxes
Any accredited media, except Fox News, press 6 to speak to David Axelrod directly
Any Hollywood celebrity may press 7 to speak to Michelle directly(except Oprah, of course)
Any illegal immigrant seeking immediate citizenship press 8 for the automated green card line. If you are on the other side of one of our borders, press 9 for an escort across.
Anyone with any idea about cutting government spending, press zero for an operator.
So, I pressed zero. I got a recorded message that said, “the high level of calls is resulting in a long wait time. The estimated wait time is 4 years and 24 days”.
