What a bunch of assholes!
They're just droids following a script - there is no thinking involved whatsoever.

I was looking at Enterprise Rent A Car the other day. Our local office had closed down due to Covid. They have that happy little window on their page 'chat with an agent for help'. ALL I wanted to know was if the local office had reopened. I clicked on it. Waited a couple of minutes. Finally some auto-scripts or something started rolling with the regular goofy questions before the real person came online. "How can I help you today?" "Is the office for 30701 back open for biz?" pause....wait....still waiting..."Can I get your name and phone number?" me:" Is the 30701 location open for biz?" "I'll be glad to help you with that." "Can I get your name and phone number for one of our agents to call you?" me: "It's a simple question! I don't want anyone calling! If I had wanted a phone call I would have called it myself!" A total waste of 20 minutes with that nonsense.

I'm going to do that the next time my phone rings. BTW, my grandmother's name was Peggy. Hope she doesn't call me from the grave.
