The End of Trumbull 'Robocalls'

One Trumbull resident's take on Trumbull construction updates via telephone.

"I'll Drive There . . . My Way"

                   (sung to the immortal Frank Sinatra tune, "My Way")


     And now, the end is here,

     And so we say,

     Good-bye to robo calls;


     I'm glad,

     To see them go,

     Quite sure to know,

     That there'll be no more calls . . .


     I won't miss,

     Being told

     How to drive

     In town construction . . .


     Oh no -

     I'll find my way,

     Without robo-instruction.


     For what is a woman,

     What has she got,

     If not her own map,

     Then she has not

     To drive her way

     As she truly feels,

     And not the road

     Of those who heel . . .


     Let the record show,

     I figured out how to go,

     And I drove there . . .


     MY way!


     Yes . . . it was my way.


(Thanks, Mr. Sinatra, you were the very best.)

I actually appreciated knowing where the bottlenecks were. While I did not live in the areas directly affected, I did take kids to and from schools for various events.

In theory, it would be nice to know which areas of town to avoid, but then that is what detour signs are for. I think we all already know that it's best to avoid Nichols in general, since roads have been under construction there for quite some time. To me, the issue is that these robo calls will lose their impact when there is a true town emergency. Kind of like the story of the boy who cried wolf.

The system does not wait until my answering service starts recording. I get the last few seconds on the message, if anything at all.
