No Safe Place To Hide

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

My day was over and I was riding in the elevator on my way home from work. The other passengers had left so I was the only one. Then I heard it. It was a woman’s voice and it was very faint.

I quickly glanced at my cell phone. Off.

I searched in my bag. Nothing.

Running out of options, my eyes wandered over to the elevator control panel and the emergency phone box under the buttons. The little door was unlocked so I opened it slowly and the voice grew louder.

“If you would like to reduce your interest rate, dial 1 now”.

Talk about interruption marketing!!!

Next thing you know, they’ll be advertising in the restrooms!!!

And you thought EDA sales guys were annoying 🙂
