Not worth pitting. But I repeatedly have problem in the automated call-center systems (which of course now make it very hard for you to talk directly to an operator without going through a bunch of number-prompts and, more recently, voice prompts.).
I will leave for another rant the joy of entering all the demanded information, finally being passed to a live agent, and then being asked the same questions again by the agent.
But am I the only one who can’t get the GD system to recognize my 100% fluent, unaccented English? Five minutes of going through the prompts with repeated machine-spoken versions of “I’m sorry, I didn’t get that. Could you repeat your reservation number?” or “Okay. I think you said your destination was Baku, Azerbaijan. Is that right?” usually leaves me drawing stares from onlookers in the airline lounge as I shout “NO!” into the phone.
How in the world do people with strong regional accents, let alone immigrants, deal with these things?
