AT&T's Interpreter Service, Domestic Division
This hit my mailbox in 1991, not too long after AT&T really started pushing their new interpretation services.

AT&T's new Interpreter Service has announced a new dimension in, now, domestic interpretation. Here's a sample:
Operator: 337, this is Tina, may I help you?
Woman: Yes, please dial 555-1212, and I'd like a male-female interpreter, please.
Operator: One moment.
Woman: I just want to be friends, Carl.
Interpreter: You're history, buddy.
Man: No! You can't be serious!
Interpreter: Why break up? We can still have good sex!
Woman: Please Carl, don't make this any harder for me.
Interpreter: If you come within a five-block radius of my house, my new boyfriend Carlos will rip off your head.
Man: I don't like it, but I think I understand....
Interpreter: I don't care -- I know your sister too!
