We’ve all done considerable time there. Americans are spending endless hours on hold, often without food or water, deep inside that secret prison otherwise known as the “Corporate Call Center.” It appears that real-time, human contact is the last thing most companies want to have with us.
To fight back, many Americans are deciding whether to continue doing business with companies based on the experiences they have while incarcerated within these increasingly oppressive automated call answering systems.

Oh, and one more thing. I took an interesting flight recently. It’s a flight we’ve all taken, and it’s the subject of the next Hoytus. Hope to post by 10/20 or so.
