Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



I wish - just once - that when I call an organization that I could get a real-live person the very first time instead of that stupid automated system that never recognizes my Texas drawl when I try to respond to it.


Can I go back to the sundeck of the cruise ship now? Huh? Please?

    I've heard that if you hit 0 repeatedly, you can sometimes cause those systems to screw up and go through to a real person.

    Just a suggestion.

    I try that most of the time and sometimes it works. One system that I did that to hung up on me. Then, I was REALLY pissed when I had to call back.

    My favorite yesterday was calling to make sure of the right amount to pay and I kept trying to say my account number and it the automated lady would say she didn't understand and let's try again. After the third time, I muttered Jesus Christ and it interpreted that as June. *shaking my head*

    That happens to me--the southern accent gets me every time--oh, and yelling it, doesn't help either. ;-)
