Don't feel too bad. I keep getting a very short, abrupt message on my answering machine telling me to call an 800 number. No company identification or anything. I finally decide to call and tell them to stop leaving me recorded messages. So I call the number and the recorded voice (a different one) answers with "[major credit card company] customer service. Please enter your credit card number to continue." So I figure there must be some issue since I still haven't gotten the new card they were supposed to send. I start entering the number before sanity kicks back in and I ask myself why I'm so willing to give my credit card information to a recording that called me! So I hung up before giving any additional information.
That reminds me that I still need to call the credit card company and find out about the card. And if it's actually them sending the recorded message. If so, they're going to get an earful about poor customer service!
