Life’s mysteries: Dialing 1
This is probably the first of a series, because I can no longer suffer these mysteries in silence.
I just called a McDonald’s near where we’re headed today, trying to find out if it had an indoor play area for our son.
I forgot to dial 1 when I called. I got the usual message: “You must dial 1…”
The system knows I didn’t dial 1. It knows that I need 1.
Instead of telling me I need 1, and forcing me to dial again, and clogging the network with a second, needless call–why doesn’t the system just add the frickin’ 1?
As in: “I see you forgot to dial 1. I’ll add it for you this time, but please remember to dial it next time you call! Have a nice day!”
It’s a mystery.
