Our cell phone bill was due yesterday and I always hit #666 from my phone to pay it automatically....you know I am exaggerating when I say 666, but I feel like I am paying Satan once a month. So yesterday I dial and have to go through the automated song and dance. Not paying attention I pressed two instead of one when when the language option came up. I PRESSED TWO! You know what that means don't you? My call was sent through towers across the land to a little shack in Mexico where someone says "hola".
How was I to get back to that place where I could hear English again without hanging up and starting over. "No habla Espanol", I said. "Ingles por favor".
This is what I hear:
Now I mean no disrespect to the Spanish speaking population out there. I love my Hispanics...I just don't speak the language, and quite frankly, I don't think I should have to press one for English when I am in America. Why don't you have to press one for Spanish? English should be the assumed language unless otherwise specified by pressing one. I bet they don't have to press one for German in Germany!
FYI - I had to hang up and start over.
