This call is being recorded for training purposes

1 Comment 1st July 2010

For some reason, every time you telephone a corporation, public or private, you have to hear a recorded voice saying: "This call is being recorded for training purposes". I don't know why. Someone's afraid of something. Maybe transgressing the Data Protection Act ? It's irritating and shouldn't be necessary.

Why does this matter?

One of life's many little unnecessary irritations.

    “This call is being recorded for xyz purposes” has begun to blight my everyday life. To me, it’s a red flag to a bull. Whatever I initially intend to say always gets lost because I insist on an explanation of the TC message before I continue. Last night, I phoned Radio 5Live with a contribution. Guess what? Obviously I needed to know why? The interviewer told me it was irrelevent and eventually put the phone down on me. I phoned again; ditto. And again ditto. Four more times I phoned and my calls just rang out. I sent e-mails. You will smile ironically at the replies I received.
