Phone trees...

Okay, so I call webhosting directly, because, surprisingly (feel the sarcasm) the extension I have doesn't work. I follow the little phone tree prompts...that specifically say "talk to a webhosting cust serv rep"....(I'm thinking, yay! Bingo!)....and get a dial up rep? Uhm. Hello? He gives me an extension, different than the one I have..which, doesn't work. Natch.
Now, I know that phone trees are intentionally confusing, no matter which company you call, but give me a break. This is bordering insanely ridiculus. No wonder I'm getting yelled at for this more often.
Oh..here's another thing. Why do customers always have to argue usage with me? I tell them, we don't charge for usage (being as most accounts are unlimited), we charge for the availability. Invariably, I get .. "Yes, I understand...but, I didn't use the account...." *blinkblink* You sure you understand? Do you have any idea how idiotic you sound with that statement?

Oh...you think that's bad? That's normal...I get it all day long. Try reading the one a few days back...the one where she didn't know *how* she was being billed...but had an invoice in her hand. *shakes head* I know these people have brains....did they leak out the ear while on hold or what??
