Here is something I hate.
Hate as in loathe. Hate as in detest. Hate as in abhor. Hate as in abominate.
It is my considered opinion that those phone mazes wherein one responds verbally are simply ghastly. One must e-nun-cee-ate very clearly, and even then half the time it doesn’t understand what you’re saying. And the more “natural” they’ve tried to make it, the more annoying it is. “I’m sorry…I didn’t quite catch that. Could you repeat it for me?”
