MyPoolBoy - the Cable Interview

MyPoolBoy was on the phone with the cable company because the on-demand movies weren't working. At first he was apparantly talking to a machine that was programmed to respond to voice commands... and it didn't understand Texas drawl.

Name: MyPoolBoy
Phone Number: XXX-XXX-XXXX
Zip Code: ZZZZZ
Cable Code Error: ####

Then there was the obvious "please hold for the next available service representative" - and then after listening to him state his name and phone number and repeat our zipcode twice I started ad-libbing the "rest" of the conversation for him:

My turn-offs are talking to machines and guys that ask too many questions.

I laughed. He didn't.
The usual.
