Press One For English

press_1_for_english_011

why should i have to press one for english? can someone explain this to me? it makes me shake my head every time i call my cable company…nevermind the fact that it takes forever to “speak to a representitive.” it should be assumed you can speak and understand english, if not press two.

when i go to foreign countries i don’t expect them to understand english. i try to speak the language. i make sure i know some common phrases and words, so i’m not known for being the stupid american. i took french in high school, and even though that was a while ago i remembered enough of it to find my plane in the paris airport. when i went to italy my aunt brought a handy pocket dictionary. of course i couldn’t speak italian, but i knew one of the most important phrases in any language: “excuse me.”

so please i’m begging you…don’t make me press one for english.

    the worst is when the ATM asks you to choose between ‘returning your card’ and ‘another transaction’. seriously, how many people do 2 or more transactions at the ATM? i think they can put the card back in to save the rest of us from having to choose ‘return card’

    if you’re lazy enough to do more than 1 transaction at an atm you deserve to get your card eaten by the machine….you gotta keep people in line one way or another
