When calling businesses or authorities nowadays, one seldom speaks directly with a live voice, but must first navigate a labyrinth of choices on several stages before finally often arriving at a dead end. This exercise could be developed into a tele-menu-maze challenge charging callers to try to get

For example, Press 1 to turn left, press 2 to go straight ahead, press 3 to turn right or press 4 to turn around.
Press 1 to turn left, press 3 to turn right or press 4 to turn around.
Press 4 to turn around
