Robo Calls World Fair

a World’s Fair with many phones
  [vote for,

Just like all the big World Fairs, this fair will have exotic pavilions from each country represented. Decorated in unique styles inside and out, these pavilions house many kinds of phones. Each phone has a different ringtone so the cacophony might become too much for some folks. But then pick up one and hear the message…

There are hundreds of messages to enjoy,(as I am sure you all have a favorite) but the best part is that after the message, you may leave a retort. These will also be recorded. All these recorded retorts will be available the next day. Your ticket price includes the Retort Pavilion you so may return to enjoy all the things that folks can say to Robo callers.

If you choose to press 9 to be connected to a live operator, there is no telling what may happen.

       I have a phone here, could I not call in to save me travelling to the place where the pavilions are (wherever that is)?

       What? I can’t believe you didn’t know we were using your house! The trucks with the props will arrive shortly

       I thought this was about a robot that tells everybody how the world is fair.

       Well I have waited in all day and no props have arrived. Are you sure you gave the correct address? Its 90131p1 Plomcop House, Pomcolc Crescent (off Poplocm Road), Pocooccocoococc village, near Poloclo Town, Plcopol County, Republic of Polcmp. Make sure you spell each bit exactly right as it is easy to confuse with similarly spelt roads and towns in the area, resulting in the sender being billed for four-figure "address mispelled, return to sender" fees.

       sorry [poc] I was out of town and found out the fair has been canceled. It was just a rant anyway.

       I demand my money back!
pocmloc, Jul 08 2021

       The check is in the mail

       This sounds like a hell loop!
