Well, I betcha that if you find yourself on trial for the brutal murder
of an IVR designer, you'll be all too eager to plead temporary insanity.

A judgement of insanity assumes that wishing to beat the
designer/approver to death for what they are putting you through, or
wishing to consign them to eternal, fiery damnation (death would be
letting them off far, far too easily) with yours being the finger on the
"burn baby burn" button, is in any way an unreasonable response.

In fact, it is not.

Harumph!

Insane... Anything but.
