    true, i think they make sure its a shit line, and someone with a deliberately thick accent to ensure you waste as much time as possible talking

    pass-the-tosser used to be our favourite game in ticketmaster. if we got a customer who started giving you shit (but not swearing, so cant hang up on him), we'd apologise in the warmest manner, and reassure him that we'll just go to talk to the manager and try our best to resolve his situation. so id put them on hold, go make myself a brew, a quick trip to the toilet, perhaps hit on the the hot admin for the millionth time, and then return to the customer, apologise whole heartily, and explain that the next college i'll be passing him to would definately resolve the situation. at this point there are two options: if the guy responded positively to that, id just transfer him to another agent, usually the one i liked the least, to deal with him whichever way he wanted. Or, if the customer had been an exceptional dick, id pass him to a mate that was participating to the game, and have the whole hold-brew-piss-sweet talk-apologise-pass cycle again.

    moral: be fucking nice to phone agents, or they'll fuck you up. they can, and if played right, they will get away with it, as i did time after time.

    BT and Vodafone agents are excluded, as they have absolutely no brain and they all need to be eradicated once and for all.

    haha, that is pretty impressive.
    there undoubtedly some tossers that ring up and expect to have the problem solved instantly.

    what is annoying is when you have to go through all the bollocks verification stuff for the 8 millionth time, yes i do live there etc etc

    ya. usually, after passing-the-tosser for the third time, 70% he would start shouting and/or swearing, so we could hang up to him. if he was still keeping legit, but still a dick, we'd had to put him through the initial automated system, where it would take him about 15 min to get to another agent.

    mmm, felt good man (y)

    BT are the fucking worst, you'd think if they operate the phones they'd know how to answer one

    A couple of years ago I had to call them from a phonebox as I didn't have a house line set up... the phone box was convienienly situated where all the homeless and heroin addicts are on patrol.. I was in that phone box for over an hour and by the end there was a very agitated homeless guy shouting at me and trying to bang the door down

    Nice Manoli, I have spent a few years of my life in call centre jobs. They can be great as long as you are having fun at other peoples expense.

    i got fucked about a fair bit by scottish power, twice.

    i had orange business contract phones, and if i'm honest, their business customer service is second to none. really helpful. which goes to show that it can be done.
