My phone is tapped

Every time I talk to someone in the U.S or Iran, I can hear the double connection, the clicking and the annoying spying. Are they really that stupid? If they’re going to tap my phone, they should do it discreetly. I don’t need to be reminded of some idiot listening to my conversation. I mean if they want to hear me tell my friend that I threw up yesterday because I had a stomach flu, that’s their business, but they could at least spare me the terrible connection. Are they being blatantly obvious on purpose? I have no clue what goes through their feeble minds. 

I guess I should be thankful that I am not able to hear them breathe. After 9/11, I complained to AT&T about my phone being tapped. The conversations went something like this:
Me: My phone is tapped.
AT&T operator: Why do you think that?
Me: Because I can hear the person breathing when I get on the phone.
AT&T: Do you have a cordless?
ME: Yes, I like to keep up with this century.
AT&T: Try changing the battery. It’s probably because the battery is low.

Wowwww!!! You know, the phone tapping doesn’t bother me as much as the fact that they truly believe people are stupid. But really, who is the stupid person in the above conversation?
