"press one"

“press one” [1]

by a. u. tomation

“press one for english, two for spanish, three for number four”

“press five for service, don’t get nervous, there’s a lot in store”

“press six for automation”

“press seven when you scream”

“press eight then wait (there, in the middle, of this big, bad dream)”

“cause we don’t want to talk to you, we don’t care if you cry”

“cause we just want to leave you there (on hold) until you die”

“cause we don’t care, unless you want to give us money, now”

“cause we’d like you to go away, but happy, anyhow”

“why don’t you try our web page?”

“cause it’s a nightmare, too!”

“press one (your time is up) it’s been a pleasure serving you!”


  • sometimes, one ain’t One.
