Well, I'm sure they can tell my level of pissedoffedness on the typical automated call if they're recording that part. I hope they're not recording
that part. A certain phone company makes you enter your number three times to get anywhere near a human, and then the first thing the human does is
ask you for your number. See, entering it the first three times is just busy work for you to make you think something is happening.
And then they wonder why you're cranky by the time you get a broken-English speaking human named John Smith from Mineesoda.
Be careful about getting "mean" on a call, though, because more and more companies are "not tolerating it" and will hang up on you and block you
if you attempt to call back. Companies I have heard of doing this are a certain cable company and a certain bank.
Also, if they say they're recording me? I turn on my recorder and tell them I'm recording them too so they can't lie to me or about me. That always
causes a long pause (I think they're looking up the situation in their "map" or "flowchart" what to say) and then a very polite reply back.
