Beep! Please Hold...

...and a representitive will be with you shortly.

arrrrggghhh! that has got to be one of THE most annoying phrases in the english language. that automated voice chirping so sweetly, as though we've got all the time in the world to sit and hold, only to be transferred to another sweet, squeaky robot who also promises that help is on the way.

i usually hang up and try again later. sometimes it works, and miraculously a live person will get on the line, but often it's just an endless game of waiting, frustration, and beeping machines! grrrrrr!

haha yeah, if they're gonna make us wait around all day, the least they can do is pipe in a little music to pass the time!<br />

being put on hold def sucks. but as iamsomebody pointed out, thankfully ep isn't a place where we have to deal with any of that crap!

what i love is the docter office music they give to you to listen to!

Yeah.. it is quite annoying..,, hold and hold... sometimes.. i don't have patience... ... also another annoying thing is that the overseas customer service .. weather you are calling for the cell phone or PC or Camera.. now days you get connected with overseas operator.. Some are just ridiculously slow and sometimes i don't understand what they are saying.. coze a heavy accent. Ummm what is going on.. Hugs*

What is even better is when you finally get someone, and they tell you that you have to be transfered to a different department so you can wait some more!
