Heard: Email, Call, Email, Call ...

Today I called a Hill office and spoke with an intern. I asked to speak to a specific member of their staff so I could get their email, and was told that if I left my email that person would get back to me. Five minutes later, I received an email from said intern saying if I call the office they can transfer me to the staffer's line, they just can't give the email out freely. The only appropriate response I can think of for this intern is, "Why didn't you just connect me the first time?"
