I’m on the phone with some yahoo over at Chase Bank, applying for a new business credit card. I have no idea where this particular call center is– probably somewhere in India– but the guy cracks me up because he sounds like one of those computer synthesizers trying really hard to sound like a human.

It reminds me of Stephen Hawking’s speech synthesizer…

In fact, it sounds just like him. Maybe it is him! Astrophysics is such a dull field; call centers are probably much more fun.
