Talk to People, Not Machines
Frustrated by those awkward computerized phone trees you get when trying to call customer service? Well grab an ax and chop down that phone tree!
The GetHuman Database at www.gethuman.com provides instructions for bypassing automated phone trees for hundreds of companies and organizations so that you can cut to the chase and talk to a real live person to ask your real live questions.
Now, I can't make any promises that you'll be immune from the runaround with a live operator. But at least you'll save a few minutes before slaving away on the intricacies of the English language with a representative from Bangalore.
