Automated phone menus

I don't know about all of you, but I can't stand it when I try to get a hold of some place & I get a stupid automated system that leads me to hang up.

Found a website with some tips. Check it out.

WOO HOO ! ! !

"Interrupt. Press 0 (or 0# or #0 or 0* or *0) repeatedly, sometimes quickly. Unfortunately the same keystroke does not always work for each company. Many IVRs will connect to a human after a few "invalid entries", although some IVRs will hangup. :-("

I use that trick, all the time. It works quite often.

there is NOTHING I hate more than those damned automated menus when you call a business.

those machines make me hang up instantly. I just dont have the patience to go through all those freakin menus and crap JUST to talk to a person 4 hours later, and after I forgot what I needed in the first place.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

The duke rocks harder than any thing that has ever, or will ever rock.
