    I heard in a radio interview that it is now considered rude to phone an office worker without an appointment.

    So now we have to make an appointment to make an appointment to see the person in person. This world is getting weirder by the day.

    Now all the sudden you need to read several pages on paging.

    I do love the shout-at-the-top-of-your-lungs voice system that still manages to screw it up.

    I had cause to ’phone the local authority yesterday and, as usual, was put on hold. The usual cr*pp* music was interrupted by announcements that were themselves interrupted by other announcements.
    .
    Now and again a female voice would say “Child Support Benefits” but nothing else. I had 10 minutes of this. And all because I wanted a new medical sharps box which I should have been able to order over the internet.

    I need the old one collecting, too. As a registered diabetic, my other half doesn’t pay for medication, pens or needles etc. As a registered epileptic, I’m not subject to prescription charges either. Bit of a problem ridden household aren’t we!

    I get my sharps box free at the local hospital’s ER/clinic— walk in with a full one, out with an empty. I’m not going to question it!

    I work at a company that sells/installs/maintains phone systems. I am a tech for the Internet side of the business; I cannot conference someone, or park them, but I DO know how to transfer. I guess I’m not technical enough.

    “On Hold” is now a bad word, er a phrase!

    I prefer two tin cans connected by a string.

    The key to dealing with the automated phone systems that make you speak to them is to over-enunciate and draw out the pause between words. Basically, if you talk like the machines do, they’ll understand you better!

    Nature only abhors a vacuum in an atmosphere.

    I’ve found that if you press 0 every time, you eventually get an actual person on the line.

    “If you are calling from a touch-tone phone, press 1. If not, press 2.”
