I'm Afraid I Can't Do That, Dave
Is it possible for a computerized voice to sound annoyed? Because I think my voicemail lady is irked at my sentimental saving of messages. When she informs me that three of my messages are "about to expire," she sounds positively chirpy. But when I listen to them again, and they make me smile again, and I re-save them, again, she drones through "this message will be saved for twenty-one days" in a decidedly chilly tone. If she had teeth to clench, they'd be clenched. I resent this kind of judgement.
