Predictive dialers

I had grown rather fond of the absence of these abominations, but lately I’ve been getting hang-up calls from them again, from telemarketers. If you’re not familiar with it, the predictive dialer is a device that allows a call center to call multiple people at once, and connect the operator to the first person who picks up. The rest get hung up on. For about a week now, I’ve been among “the rest” for a mystery call center that’s fond of calling me in the mornings, even mornings when I’ve slept badly and thrown up during the night due to unidentified nausea.

When I become a supervillain, the use of these devices will incur the death penalty. Retroactively.
