I don’t know what it is about electronic voices, but they just give me the creeps. Whether it is virtual assistants like Siri or Allegra (or do I mean Alexa) or the ladies who ask you to press 1 or 2 when you call a help line, I don’t feel comfortable with any of them. Unless it is a good old fashioned human voice at the other end of the line, I avoid talking.
Did I mention that I even have a phobia about talking to answering machines? Even when people have recorded messages in their own voices telling you “We’re out; please leave a message after the beep” I hang up.
Have you ever felt this way? Do drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know.
