The annoying person in the office, automated

My phone rang.

Since I was expecting an important message — I’m basically in the fourth of these stages — I bolted from the laundry room to answer before it went to voicemail.

Suzi, having no interest in taking a charge, deftly stepped out of my way.

Alas, I could tell from the call’s location that it wasn’t the one I was waiting for, but I picked up to hear a recorded message from the State of Massachusetts telling me that COVID booster shots are available.

When the time comes, I’ll be very happy to get a booster shot, but the earliest I’ll be eligible is next month … plus it wasn’t the call I was looking for.

OK, whatever, just another robocall. Annoying, but it happens.

However, the call came about an hour after I got a text message …

… from the State of Massachusetts …

… telling me that COVID booster shots are available.

Like the phone call, I’m sure the text was automated, meaning the state has developed a computerized version of the coworker who calls you to ask if you got the email he or she just sent.
