I’ve seen some puzzling messages from Google Voice’s transcription, but this attempt to translate an automated reminder to pay my cable bill left me really scratching my head.

After listening to the message (embedded below), it turns out it was attempting to transcribe in English what the automated attendant was saying in Spanish.

The puzzling text excerpt:
