+ Hello, hello. I need to talk. It's urgent.

- Who do you want to talk to sir?

+ A real, live person. Someone with a heart and brain. Not some damn machine.

- I'm afraid that's impossible sir. We have an avatar for every problem. What is your problem?

+ Alright. Listen carefully! My four year old child just tipped a bottle of shampoo into our fish tank

- I'll pass you to the child care avatar

+ No, no, you mechanical idiot! What can I do with 12 fish who can't stop blowing shampoo bubbles?

- I'll pass you to the fish recipe avatar. There are many ways to cook shampood fish.

+ Enough of this nonsense! I am cancelling my account with your help agency.

- I'll pass you to the mental problem avatar. You cannot cancel your account, ever.

+ Aaagh! Am I dreaming? Am I crazy ? Are there any humans in your company?

- No sir. Human beings are not reliable.
