Especially on the telephone. This is what happened today...



I call a funeral home and apon the answering of the phone by an automated system thinking, 'okay, that's a little insensitive, but thinking real hard about what I am supposed to say to said automated system to get where I need to go- in a funeral home. So I respond customer service in a very clear manner like you would to a computer on the third question of how can I direct your call today? Only to find out after asking like a dummy, 'is this a real person'. When in fact it is a real person. And then trying to hold composure from laughing so hard I snort and then have to apologize again for being completely mortified because well, I wonder how that lady felt? And the worst thing is- I'm pretty sure she's the same lady I said that to last week when I called.

Whenever I call & get a real person when I'm expecting an automated I always do a few ummms & uhhhhsss. The fact that a person answered totally throws me off & draw a blank

That's the thing. I was totally expecting a real person and when it sounds like an automated system I was totally thrown off and then the conversation following was just. Bad.
