( 8:04 AM ) teahouse
I got a new phone installed in my office.
My old phone was a standard office phone, made sometime in the early 90s.
This week we all got new phones. The one I have is unbelievable. It's all digital, it's got a liquid crystal display screen that times my calls, has caller i.d., blinks and whistles, changes its display, anticipates my every need.
I think this phone is smarter than I am.
Yesterday I went to hang it up after a call, and I swear it said to me, in a robotic and toneless voice, "I'm sorry, THB, I'm afraid I can't let you do that." #
