About me :
Strange being "the new boy" in the workplace at the ripe age of 60, a lot of stuff to take on board, but should be fine. Haven't yet introduced my new colleagues to my jokes and dreadful puns. Nice to leave home at 9.30 a.m and land home at 3.30 p.m!
Satisfactory
Pro Used to be common
Cons Globally endangered species now

"BLUES - "Customer service blues""

Customer service blues

Customer service blues

We've all been there! You ring a company, get put on hold for an age (during which time you're encouraged to use other means of contact).

You finally get through and the person you speak to is neither use nor ornament when it comes to resolving your problem, then asks the incredible "Is there anything else I can help you with?"

Here's a music-themed semi-humorous rant about the demise of customer service. I know, I should get a life and get out more. On the other hand, I do have rather more time on my hands than I had a few weeks ago, and writing this beats housework (don't tell Mrs M this is how I'm spending my time when she's out!)


Apologies to those who aren't interested in blues music, but the lyrics may strike a chord (and, no, I won't apologise for the pun!) Try to imagine some raucous, bottleneck chord riffs...

Some of my "Room 101" customer "service" issues here - any of yours I haven't included?!

Hope you like it!

Customer service blues, I got it all the time
Customer service blues, man, I got it all the time –
Customer service blues, sure gonna lose my mind!


Man at the bank, seems he’s nothing to do
Man at the bank, sure seems he’s nothing to do –
Clipboard in hands, asks, “Sir, can I help you?”


Man shakes his head, says, “Sir, I’m sad and blue”
Yeah, man shakes his head, says, “I’m so sad and blue –
Can’t help with that – you need to join the queue.”


Customer service blues, I got it all the time
Yeah, customer service blues, seem to have it all the time –
Customer service blues, sure gonna lose my mind!


Menu choices on the phone ‘nuff to make you dizzy
Yeah, menu choices sure will drive you dizzy;
Press all the buttons, voice says, “We’re all busy.”


The music pauses, hear “We’ll be with you soon”
Music pauses, voice says “We’ll be with you soon” –
Fifteen minutes later, same old dreadful tune!


Man on the phone wants to use my first name,
Said, man on the phone calls me by my first name
But he’s no help at all – ain’t that a crying shame?


Once used to hear “Customer’s always right”
Yeah, used to hear “The customer’s always right”
Now no-one wants to help in my sorry plight.


Customer service blues, I got it all the time
Yeah, customer service blues, I got it all the time –
Customer service blues, sure gonna lose my mind!
