Thank you, automated United Airlines rep

I called United to book a flight in Hawaii. I wanted to do it online, but to use United miles on an Aloha Airlines flight, you have to do battle with the automated United representative. This, with no exaggeration for comic effect, is part of the transcript.

Automated United rep: What is the departure city?
Me: Kahului (KAH-hoo-LOO-ee), Hawaii.
AUR: Was that {pause} Adelaide, Australia?
M: No.

Kendra: You are the sock puppet? His face doesn't look like your fingers though. Weird.

Lee Ann: Yeah, when those automated things work, they're awesome, but most of the time they suck hard.

It's even funnier when you say "suck my left one" and they say "Was that Chicago, Illinois?" Try it!

I told the automated customer service person to suck my both of my balls simultaneously and I ended up getting a free flight to Amsterdam!
