This made me larf !

I have some "white noise" on my phone line, when I listen to the dial tone, using the "monitor" facility.... it is quite loud, however, being hard of hearing, I can only just detect it, when I use the normal earpiece, ( yes pierre I know I can switch my hearing aid to the T position).... without my hearing aid, as this is the only way I can use the phone...
so, I decided to call BT faults (my phone supplier)....
Having dialled 150, and listened to the menu,  "if the number your are speaking from is this number ..... press 1....
Thank you ,..... you now have 4 choices....
(listed the 4 choices and I made my choice)...
to check that we are dealing with your phone I need to check your number..... you said.... 02392 XXXXXXX... if this is correct press 1
you now have 4 choices... (i think).... one of which was
"If you cannot make or receive calls......... press 1 ".......
erm.? ? ?  Roll eyes
ROFL and put the phone down !

That's like the famous boot-up message:
"Keyboard error. Press F1 to continue."
