I just had a spam phone call. These are rare things but very annoying nonetheless. There is something more immediate about a phone call. A ringing phone demands your attention. So, by the time I have put whatever music I have been listening to on hold and taken the earphone out of my ear and picked up the phone, I'm fairly keen to find out who wants to speak to me.
It is therefore intensely disappointing to have some recorded American voice bellowing in my ear about holidays.
