this is not a way to keep me on the line

so twice today i’ve gotten a phone call at this job that starts “this is not a joke.” okay …? normally, those start “this is not a sales call” or “this is not a telemarketing call” or “this is an important call.”

but “this is not a joke?” what? that pretty much makes it a joke. that is the weirdest start to an automated call i’ve ever heard.
