Today's Rant. Being put on hold making a phone call.

Postby charlie beard » Mon Jan 06, 2014 2:22 pm

I made a phone call today on a bill that was incorrect.

First English, then Spanish,then press one for English.
Then you get music that would make a dog howl.
After 21 minutes you get someone you can't understand Geeze.
After having this person slow down on their talking and repeat three times I got the issue addressed.
Dam I'm doing the slow burn listening to what sounded like and Estate auction.

Maybe I should mail order for a Filipino gal.
Well on second thought they are all too young.
Need one around 60-65, hell to get old fellows. :biggrin:

I hate being put on hold. :no:

The one that really grinds my gears is the telemarketers that have a recording when they call you that says "please hold for an amazing offer" I am not as mean to telemarketers as a lot of folks but I will hold just to yell in their ear when a real person picks up. "You don't call someone and then ask them to F'in hold" it drives me nuts!

Were they from Massachusetts? I cant understand them. I have watched hundreds of episodes of This Old House and still have no idea how to install a toilet.
