Only in HK – a machine calls you

I am rather annoyed as I post this in a hurry.  The mobile phone rang, i answered it and immediately heard the voice recorded message on the latest credit card offers, in Cantonese.  There is much to be annoyed about, firstly the fact that this sales call is unsolicited and therefore spam… how did they even get my mobile number? Secondly if you receive a call, you’d expect a human on the other side… not a voice recording, regurgitating the sales pitch.  Thirdly, the sales pitch is in Cantonese – a language that I’m not too familiar with. 

So how long do you think I hung on to that call?   Not long enough to hear the second sentence. The only good thing is I could hang up without apologising or feeling bad.
