Artificial Intelligence is doing the rounds throughout not only the telephony industry but also the digital market as a whole. We incorporate AI within our transcriptions feature, as well as WhatsApp integration. With this tool being so impressive and the spookiest time of the year drawing close…We thought we’d have some fun with ChatGPT and ask it to tell us a spooky story.

Once upon a chilling autumn night, a group of friends gathered around a crackling campfire deep in the heart of a dense forest. As the moon cast an eerie glow, one of them began to weave a spine-tingling tale that sent shivers down everyone’s spines.
Legend had it that long ago, in the abandoned town nearby, there stood a derelict telephone exchange. The abandoned building, known as the Haunted Switchboard, was said to be cursed by a malevolent spirit. It was whispered that the ghostly apparition of a former telephone operator still roamed the halls, forever trapped between the realms of the living and the dead.
The friends huddled closer, their eyes wide with anticipation. They listened intently as the storyteller revealed that the Haunted Switchboard held a dark secret. It was rumoured that late at night, if one were to dial a specific sequence of numbers on an old rotary phone, the call would connect to the afterlife itself.
With trembling hands, the bravest of the group produced an ancient handset they had discovered in an attic. They dialled the sequence, their fingers slipping over the worn numbers. Suddenly, the air grew colder, and the campfire flickered ominously. The friends held their breath, their hearts pounding in their chests.
To their horror, a spectral voice crackled through the handset, whispering tales of lost souls and eternal torment. The call was being recorded, and the sinister spirit demanded that the friends pass the recording on to others, spreading the curse and perpetuating its reign of terror.
Frantically, the group tried to disconnect the call, but the spirit’s grip was unyielding. The call routing seemed to be controlled by an otherworldly force, manipulating the very fabric of their reality. It became clear that they were caught in a web of connectivity, unable to escape.
In a desperate attempt to break free from the clutches of the Haunted Switchboard, the friends turned to technology for salvation. They reached for their smartphones and dialled the number they had heard whispered in the ghostly transmission: WhatsApp. With a collective effort, they sent the eerie recording to a group of unsuspecting recipients, hoping to share their burden and break the curse.
As the last message was sent, the spirit’s presence faded, and the Haunted Switchboard fell silent once more. The friends breathed a sigh of relief, realising they had narrowly escaped the clutches of the supernatural. From that night on, they vowed never to delve into the dark secrets of the telephone industry again, for fear of awakening forces beyond their control.
And so, as the campfire dwindled, the friends stared into the dying embers, forever haunted by the memory of the Haunted Switchboard and the chilling tale of Nationwide Telephone Assistance.
