I'm loving "The Heist" and now all my family are playing with it but I had a bit of a surreal moment yesterday. I will say I was very tired.
Just as I finished a level I got a call from "UnKnown", I was unsure whether I was still in the game or whether in was a real call it went something like this:-
I Answer buy say nothing (not really sure whether I'm still in the game)
I say "Hello"
<Strong accent voice starts talking, but it's fairly quiet and my room is noisy>
Cool I think, the app has some sort of voice activated trigger, damn these guys are good. Shame I didn't catch what was being said, so I wait hoping it'll repeat.
I say "Hello" again
<Strong accent voice says something, not the same as before but I'm concentrating now and can make out that it's an asian accent, not the eastern European lilt I would have expected. Perhaps where going truly global with this heist. Cool!
<Strong Asian voice man said something about something happing in my area?>
Strange? Doesn't sound very "Heist-like', but it's definitely an automated, recorded voice call with what seems to be a voice activated trigger.
<Strong Asian voice says "Press any key to speak to our agent" (or something like that).
Not sure which world I'm in... I Press a key...
<A man in a clear voice started to explain how I can save money on my Sky Satellite TV subscription>
<CLICK> I hang up.
Did I just spend a few minutes hold on for a cold call??? Yes.
Did I feel like an idiot? Absolutely.
Still, it amused my family that I would hold on to a cold call thinking I was playing a game, so I thought I'd share.
