And I only waited a few days and nothing showed up. Time was growing short and I knew my mortgage would be coming due, so I called back again [call 5]. At the twenty-first minute I discovered there were only human sounding things working until "9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time."

"And so that's why I'm calling you today [call 6] to see when my payment is due, if I can get a paper invoice and to make a payment if necessary."

"Let me see if you have invoices turned off for some reason. Can you hold for just a moment?"

One minute.

Two minutes.

Three minutes.

Four minutes.

I really need to take a whiz.

Seven minutes.

"Okay, I've turned on invoices. I don't know why they were turned off, but you'll receive a bill in the next few days."

"How come did the last almost human voice tell me I was going to receive an invoice a week or so ago," I asked.

"Can I be of further assistance to you?"

"Well, when's my payment due?"

"One moment please."

One minute.

Two minutes.

A writer for over 30 years and political satirist. Of course without a single published piece of merit, which makes me your average American blogger.
