The popular Mayah McGlynn of Medford is making robo-calls on behalf of Tom Reilly — just got one now, when I foolishly disregarded my blank caller ID screen. (must … pick up … the phone … It’s like that urge to swerve into oncoming traffic.)
Anyway, the Mayah mentions prescription drugs, safe streets, Tom’s spent his life in public service, that sort of thing. You can press “1” to support Tom, or “2” to ask a question of him or the campaign. I wish I’d had something pithy to ask the Robo-Mayor, but I was caught a little off-guard.
How does that work, anyway? What happens if you press “2”? Do you talk to a volunteer? Is Tom himself actually listening in on the call? Would he return our phone calls if I’d pressed “2”? That’d be a first. Seriously, I wish I’d asked something specific, not wise-ass … couldn’t do it. What’s wrong with me?
Anyone else talking to Mr. Roboto?
