Your Call Is Very Important To US

I hate when I call some business and I get the “Your Call Is Very Important to US” response. Then, pray tell, why don’t you return my damn call.

And the ultimate nasty one “Please listen to all the options as our options have changed.” Since when? And Why. Today there was one that had nine options. I just hit zero and hope to get the company operator.

Press 1 repeatedly if you are obsessive-compulsive.

If you are codependent, please have someone press 2 for you.

If you have multiple personalities press 3,4,5, and 6.

Press 7 if you are delusional  and your call will be forwarded to the Mother Ship

If you are menopausal, put the gun down, hang up, turn on the fan, lie down and cry. You won’t be crazy forever.




Cell Phone Customer Service

I’m trying hard not to get frustrated with my current/past carrier. My wife and I had two cell phones with the same company. I transferred my number to a different carrier. That took a week. Then I wanted to transfer my wife’s number to my old cell phone from her phone (because mine was newer and had a camera). Same carrier keep in mind. My first call to them was Monday. After finally making it through to tech support they informed me that it would take a few hours to accomplish this and would call me back. No call back Monday. Called Tuesday, customer service rep went over yesterday’s events and apologized for technical support not returning my call. A repeat of Monday. Again tech support did not return my call.  I made the fourth call this morning and was told it would take an additional 24 to 48 hours to FINISH transferring my number. Meanwhile my wife has no cell phone.

I won’t name the carrier but none of the calls were great calls!
