Fans who follow “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak on Twitter must be familiar with his history of scathing but accurate commentaries online. If you’ve thought something about everyday life, Sajak’s put it into words on social media.
Sajak’s latest quip comes at customer service representatives and their infuriating hold machines. We’ve all been there — wanting to talk to a real person about returning an item or changing a flight. But the call immediately directs us to a menu with an AI voice who tries to have a conversation with us.
The “Wheel of Fortune” host outlined those conversations perfectly, writing earlier today, “’Please hold. Your call is important to us. Just not important enough to hire enough operators to answer your call.'”
It’s too true. Sajak nailed it on the head with this one, and we have to give him credit for mimicking the automated voice messaging system perfectly (with his own spin, of course).
But this is one of many hilarious comments the “Wheel of Fortune” host has made this week alone. Let’s see what else he’s been up to.
The Latest and Greatest Jokes From ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Host Pat Sajak
Working backwards, aside from the customer service quip, “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak’s only posted one other comment in the last 24 hours. This one is less of a joke and more of an amusing observation about life nowadays.
“I don’t know which is stranger: the fact that there are celebrities who believe their views are especially important, or the fact that a lot of their fans actually believe that, too. I shall ruminate,” Sajak wrote earlier yesterday.
We’re curious to know more about Sajak’s “ruminations” from this pensive puzzle. But the “Wheel of Fortune” host hasn’t opened up on his thoughts since posting the observation. And, can we acknowledge the fact that he, too, is a celebrity who posts a lot about what he thinks? Maybe it’s meant to be ironic, maybe it’s not.
But what is ironic? Sajak’s post from Dec. 7. In the midst of the holidays and people worrying about Christmas shopping, Sajak has one thought for everyone.
“A Christmas message to my fellow Californians: If you plan to steal merchandise, please keep it under $950. This way, it’s a misdemeanor, and you’ll be less likely to be prosecuted. More importantly, there will be more left for others to steal. Remember, Christmas is for sharing,” Sajak joked earlier this week.
Ah yes, we wouldn’t want thieves to forget about the true meaning of Christmas. Solid reminder, Sajak.
Now, this post comes from a little over a week ago, around Black Friday. But it’s too funny and on point not to include. Sajak manages to blend together “Wheel of Fortune” and Christmas shopping all in one go.
“Due to supply chain issues, Wheel of Fortune players will be limited to three vowel purchases per show until further notice,” Sajak posted. Could you imagine? Luckily, we know Vanna White will be on top of securing those vowels for contestants so they won’t have to worry about it.
