I have a new drinking game for you all. I’m not into my drinking games as I don’t need an excuse to drink and/or game but here it is.
First of all, find a problem that can only be fixed by calling some terrible customer support phone line. Kristof could recommend the Paypal one and I can recommend pretty much every single other one.
Warm up with a quick shot. Now take a shot whenever:
- The music loops or switches to a new song.
- An automated message tells you “things are real busy but we’ll be with you soon!”
- your call gets redirected to another department
When you eventually get a human being and not a computer make sure you yell “You brought this on yourself mutha fuckeerrrrrrrr!” they will understand.
- Both sides win if they successfully help you through your problem despite your disability.
- The call center wins if you pass out/fall asleep still on the line.
Now calling up customer support will now be something you look forward to!
