opt-out

I can't remember if it was my bank or HMRC, but I was so offended by the lack of an option for an opt-out, I just tried to break the damn thing. It was fun responding:

"Say 'my voice is my id'"

"No"

"I'm sorry, please say the phrase in your normal tone of voice: 'my voice is my id'"

"No fucking way, you bastards"

"I'm sorry, please say the phrase in your normal tone of voice: 'my voice is my id'"

"..."

"I'm sorry, please say the phrase in your normal tone of voice: 'my voice is my id'"

"camel horse fish pot"

"I'm sorry, please say the phrase in your normal tone of voice: 'my voice is my id'"

"I wonder what the error rate on this is"

"I'm sorry, please say the phrase in your normal tone of voice: 'my voice is my id'"

"meow"

(I can't remember how long this went on for)

"I'm sorry, we're having trouble with our service right now, let me put you through to someone who can help'"

"jackpot!"
