You took the words right out of my mouth.  I get so annoyed when i have to cal somewhere that I know i will have to deal with the machine before i get to talk to a person.  And most of the time what you are calling for the machine can't help with.  GRRRRRR..........

there are some places i called and there would be a recording saying that it's a machine-only place, there are no human operators.

I hate those dang things!!!

The one time I thought it was a machine and I told it off, it ended up being a real person calling about the presidental campaign...they kept calling leaving me nasty messages, so sometimes I see why they replace real people with machines...

But with important things they need to have real people so they can help and understand what you are looking for. The machines are NO help so I usually push zero to get to an operator instead of sitting on the line going through 20 million options and still not being able to find what I need.

LOL I get ya. I just keep pushing 0 until I get someone, or if I have to actually TALK to the machine (how crazy!) I kinda say jibberish so I get connected to a person :O)

Yeah I agree with the previous response, jab at 0 til it connects you with an operator. I don't answer out of state phone numbers unless they're in my address book either. However I haven't gotten one of those calls since I put my number on the Do Not Call registry, and I used to receive like 3 a day.

I hate that when you have to respond to the machine. I just say 'agent' and that connects you to the operator.
