Call options

 Have you ever made a call
And got that robotic voice
Telling you  to make a choice
Or no one will speak to you at all

For English press 1
That was easy , I'm done
But then it gives you several more options
None of which are to your satisfaction

And when you think you've finally gotten through
You find that  all the representatives are busy
And by the time they get to you
You forgot why you called, and you're a bit dizzy

    Just hate it. Getting an operator from a foreign country almost always drives me to distraction. You got it right, my friend, you got it right. Allan

    One good reason, at last, to explain why I don't have a phone.... Thanks for the idea, dear Joseph! I'll use this for sure! Blessings, Hanitra

    OMG!!!!! I cannot tell you how much I despise talking to machines, especially when I am trying to speak to customer service! What you describe in your poem is the reason why I have anger issues lol. Absolutely love this!

    Cute one..It ususally is someone who lives in a foreign land and doesn't speak English very well or can't understand English or both.I had tech support when I first got a computer and it usually was a man who was from a foreign land..I did not know computer terminology and he did not understand English nor could he understand English but we managed to get through the process over several hours.Whew!!!..Thanks for stopping by..ISara
