Do you mean me??

I HATE those computer generated messages that pop up every 20 seconds or so when you're on hold these days....

"Thank you for your patience, your call is important to us and is being answered in rotation"

How presumptive of them.

Just for the record - I have NO patience... and it's insulting to be thanked repeatedly for displaying something I have NONE of.

And really, if my call was important to you, you wouldn't keep me on hold for 17 minutes before answering the phone. A HUMAN would answer.

Just saying.

Keep talking. I hear you.

(btw, my word verification today was "couth" ... of which, I have none. Is this computer trying to tell me something?)

Perfect... apparently I have none either. The poor girl only lasted a minute and a half before transfering me to a supervisor. Heh.
