    I don’t think you can waste the time of an automated computer program

      The other day I was having a bad day and had a call from an unknown number, so I decided to pick up but let them talk first. They just hang up and have not called again.

      I don’t think it was a good idea to pick up in the first place, but it was curious in the end.

        Iirc, that’s usually a sign that the robot caller has found a machine on the other end, since most people first respond with some sort of greeting right off the bat.

      It’s probably “automated” but some poor sales rep still needs to do a bunch of work to keep the automation going, guarantee it.
