I'm calling to close the account.

Toll *free* number? Hah! Half the organisations I've dealt with lately have been charging me 10p/minute for their bad customer service.

How apropos. I had this exact scenario this morning, and I was calling to close an account.

This really sums up how customer service isn't even part of the customer experience anymore. You inspired me to document my best non-customer service (or is it customer non-service?) story, also known as how I 'closed my account' with an airline.

Right on!

Tory said...

"Customer Service" should overlap with "Toll Free Number".

That's simply brilliant! Your chosen form of expression never ceases to amaze and impress me.

If you find yourself totally agreeing with this card, dial 1 now.

My bank resembles your card! Sad...very sad...

It is their pathetic attempt at trying to keep customers: annoy them into giving up. The customers usually don't like them even more.

When I closed an account with a cell phone company called Clearnet (now Fido), there was a small credit on my account. When I called them, I had to enter my account number. When I beeped in my number, it was now invalid. I never did get my money back.

I so resonate with that. Are these copyrighted or can I use this for my profile pic?

How exactly does citation work in this case?
