I want to speak to a human

Just a quickie — after jumping through some hoops to try to track where UPS might possibly have a package we'd ordered, we found a neat website … you guessed it: has lists of companies, their telephone numbers, and how to actually speak to a human when you call.

In the case of UPS, you call them, disregard the messages, and simply keep pressing "0". It goes something like this:

UPS: (something along the lines of "choose track a package" and some other stuff.

Me: 0

UPS: I'll be glad to connect you to an agent but, in the meantime, choose "track a package" etc.

Me: 0

UPS then connects me to an agent. <grin>
