Anyone who has spent any time trying to finagle their way through an automated phone system has experienced phone rage, haven't they? Or maybe it's just me. Maybe I am just losing my mind, but give me a good old fashioned human being on the other end of the line anytime.
I had a question with USCIS today, and called their handy customer service line. I then spent over a half an hour listening to various options which had nothing to do with my question. None of the options was to speak to an actual human. Eventually, after listening to the 4,783 options, you are given one final option... to press this number to return to the main menu, which of course will send you through the 4,783 options all over again.
As I sat there with my blood pressure rising higher and higher, I started to get a little delusional, and heard some new options...
Press 1 to scream into the phone
Press 2 to throw the phone against the wall
Press 3 to break something
Press 4 to hurt someone physically
Press 5 for anger management classes
Or something like that... tell me, am I alone in these feelings? Am I really losing it?
