When I was on Unemployment. That was the first thing you heard when you called, followed by it being said in Spanish lol. Then the second thing was " you will need a touch tone phone to use this service" Well duh.... I already had to hit  "1" to continue! :wallbanging:

Si, I agree.

 

I'm frustrated with a simple visit to Wal-Mart becoming an international culture experience!

When I call some service center and get somebody with an Indian accent, I always ask how the weather is in Bombay. It ticks them off, then I ask for somebody that speaks English as a FIRST language.

You know, back when, they didn't offer this service for the Irish and the Italians and the Polish. Especially not for the Chinese.

When I called to check the status of my state tax refund, it said to put in my ss number followed by the pound sign.  I did that.  Then it said to put in the expected refund amount "followed by the pound sign, which is located on the bottom right side of your telephone keypad."   How did I ever get past the first thing withought the instructions? :wallbanging:

I'm tired of it.

:ditto: Go to the ATM, push here to continue in English. :wallbanging:   Lowe's, Menards, Wal-Mart; All the boxes turned with non- English side out.  :mad2:   One day I got frustrated, and turned all the boxes around!   :smilewink:
