Explanation: The world has more bullshit going around today in a lot of spheres than it did a generation ago. “Your call is important to us” being a classic example, as is “this call is being recorded to ensure accuracy and quality”.
Translated: “We’re just fobbing you off with a meaningless catchphrase”, and “we don’t trust you, and we think you’ll lie like a rug if you can get away with it so we’re taping your call.”
I would actually be kind of happy if the voicemail maze system said something like, “your call will be recorded; be aware that we can and will use it against you in the event of any civil or criminal proceedings.”
And in terms of the job market – well, the B.Sc is the new high school diploma only you have to pay up front for that part, or get your parents to put the house in hock so you can walk out without a debt and run like a hamster in a Kafka maze of spinning wheels to get a job.
