The Costumer

First i would like to thank everyone for the inspirational comments when i was feeling so down these past days!! That's when i remember why i blog and thank you to keep on visiting me and commenting!!
Today i had to deal with the cable TV company guy, as always he put me on hold for like hours and hours and at the end he didn't fix my problem some of my channels are still missing so I'm dedicating this little poem to that guy!!

The Costumer
Good morning! Thanks for calling us!
We're pleased to hear from you!
Your call's important to us
So we've placed you in a queue.

Please find your account number and
Be sure it is correct..
It's twenty digits long and if you
Mis-type, I'll reject.

I'll lead you through the whole routine
Please use your touch type phone.
Press eight and follow with the hash
After you hear the tone.

If you are a new client here..
Press two, ..if old, press three.
Press four in case we've done something
With which you disagree!

You have pressed four, please wait a moment
While I transfer you..
And please enjoy, while we play you
A symphony or two!

Our staff are all too busy now
To talk to such as you
Your call is so important that
We've placed you in a queue."

Time passes and the music lingers
On, and bye and bye..
My cheek and ear go fast asleep,
My wrist gets R.S.I. But wait!

It may be there is hope!
I hear a ringing sound,
At last a human voice is heard
After the runaround!

"Good morning, this is Ladies wear
And may we help somehow?
Complaints?.. Oh! Just hang on a tick
I'll transfer you right now!..."

"Good morning! Thanks for calling us!
We're pleased to hear from you!
Your call's important to us
So we've placed you in a queue."

Whatever happened to the cliche slogan: The customer is always right! ?

Hope your cable guy gets it fixed so you get your $$'s worth of channels - soon! Otherwise they should give you a rebate in my opinion.
