Thought of another one:

Automated telephone service telling you to select #2 for English in English speaking Country
formerly known as People who stick finger on end of hose without first checking for bees.

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Regarding cell phones--my daughter and I went to a Renaissance festival yesterday and were aghast at the number of fully-costumed performers who had those bizarre Bluetooth earpieces. But I am not changing my name to "Bluetooth earpieces make me wonder if you're talking on the phone or just talking-to-yourself-crazy." :chill:

On a telephone theme, mine would be: automated intrusive phone call at the most inconvenient time imaginable that begins 'You are listening to a recorded message from...'. I never know who it is from. By then I have slammed the phone down.

:lol: Well, I'm glad I get to pass on some of that irritation... Crowley would be proud of me... but I do blush when I think of Johnny doing that job once. :blush:
