Wouldn't you think with the amount of people that complain about not getting to talk to a person these companies would change the way they operate.

In England, we have an 0870 number which charges a high rate when you call a line.

However, with Saynoto 0870 this gives you an alternative local number which bypasses the 'press key 3' options and gets you straight through.

I have found it invaluable many times.

When I married my husband I changed my name and it was such a pain in the ***.

Social security screwed up my date of birth. I have no idea why, the only thing I was changing was my last name. When I called help line I had to talk to a machine that mishread everything I said.

Machine: "Please give us your address."

Me: "105 North Street."

Machine: "I heard 529 Fourth St. Is that correct?"

Me: "NO! and I hate you!"

Machine: "Sorry. I did not catch that. Please try again."

When I call Bellsouth which is now AT&T I just keep hitting 0, there is nothing that annoys me more than all that recorded garbage. I figure it this way I'm paying for service from them, & if they don't want to talk to me I can go somewhere else.

HAHAHAA! This is great. I have to deal with T-mobile for myself, my husband, and my mother when things come up. They have the worst voice system EVER. If it picks up my son sneezing in the next room, it goes nuts. I just press buttons until it says to hold. I find that randomly pressing buttons works for most systems.

Great list. I just wanted to add that for the automated machines that just ask you for a verbal response, I have had luck just repeating "I need to talk to someone" over and over even if it doesn't answer the machine's question. Most recently this was with the cable company Comcast who basically hates to let you talk to a person. They also hate coming to your house so I got a call to confirm my appt then it said it would connect me with someone to see if they could fix it over the phone. I confirmed then hung up.
