Ever try and take care of something important on the phone and spend half your time just trying to get to a human being??

I HATE that.  If you want one thing, press 2.  If you want another thing, press 7 … and half the time whatever you want isn’t one of the options.  Grrrrrrr.

Anyway; in the interest of public service, here are a few tips to help you beat the system and actually TALK  to the man!

Have fun …. I find it also helps if you ice down a bucket of beer just as you begin your journey through phone purgatory!  Got any other ideas??
