Ethan was at work today, trying to contact a customer over the phone. Instead of Cheryl or Darryl or Shari, he got an automated voice saying, “Thank you for calling __._ fm radio! You’re caller number 15! Stay on the line and we’ll get your information for your caribbean cruise!”
Thinking it was a hoax, Ethan hung up and tried the number again. The line was busy. Tried again. Busy. Tried later. Busy again.
Suddenly, Ethan wondered if he had just accidentally won – and lost – a caribbean vacation for two. In only seconds.
Good thing I don’t like open water. ♦
