Three posts in one day, I'm on a roll. This must be the year of the automated political phone call. Is that really effective, I wonder? I get them every day, they fill the answering machine when I am not here. At first I listened patiently, because somehow it seemed rude to hang up on Andrew Cuomo even if it was only a recording of his voice! But now I slam the phone down immediately. My lunch was interrupted just now by some guy running for the Assembly - I didn't wait long enough to have the name sink in. Primary day is Tuesday, I'll bet the phone will be ringing off the hook.

I immediately hang up when I hear a recording as well.

This reminds me of an overheard conversation of some people complaining about their roommates leaving their cell phones lying around and not turning them off. I once had a roommate who did that and it drove me nuts when I was trying to sleep.
