    Funny thing is, the first person had an accent, but spoke excellent English, whereas the second person, named Pam, was barely understandable

    There is always some truth in fiction.

    I swear I think that's how customer services are run in some companies over here! I was once on the phone to Eircom - Ireland's main telecom service - and after 40 minutes of being passed from menu to automated menu to Bangladesh and back again.. I finally got to speak to an Irish girl who put me on hold and promptly hung up on me... Needless to say I no longer avail of their services..

    Entirely by accident, I swear. Why, did you want me to box some up and send them along with those Lucky Charms I promised you?

    Right now in Spain they're holding the Running of the Bulls,

    and the Burying of the Idiots.

    And in other news...

    A superbug named C-diff is on the rise, a germ that so ravages some people's intestines that repeated tries of the strongest, most expensive antibiotic can't conquer their disabling diarrhea.

    Now a small but growing number of doctors are trying a last-ditch treatment: Using good bacteria to fight off the bad by transplanting stool from a healthy person into the sick person's colon.

    Man, I'm finding all the good ones today. Can I get disability payments from Social Security for that?

    There is a german phone company named Arcor (also known as "Arrrgggghhor!!"), it's quite similar.

    People say that hinduism can be proven by calling Arcor's customer service and waiting forever because it takes at least four complete rebirths until you speak to a human being.

    Needless to say that the incompetent dork that picks up the phone in the end can't help you because he was reborn as a sloth, platypus or Hasselhoff.
    The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

    It's probably a painful therapy: the doctor beats the shit into someone.

    Only 4?....
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
