No More Phone Menu Hell

If there's a waste of life more egregious than a corporate 1-800 "customer service" number I have yet to find it. You know: press one for cow manure, two for ox dung, three for bovine flatulance, four to be placed on hold until the next Ice Age, etc.

This page shows how to immediately hack to a human on over a hundred different corporate customer service systems. It's a growing list. Enjoy!

Re: No More Phone Menu Hell

Cool! My company uses the key prompters for everything internally, and most of them start with "press 1 to hear all available options". Um, what's the point of telling me to press 1, why not just tell me the options now? And some systems don't even have a real person available no matter what you do. I hope our customer facing prompts aren't that bad!
