Put Down That Dialing Wand!

Sick of calling a help line, only to have to hit 87 buttons before you get any help? Fingers too fat to use a touch-tone phone? Some guy named Paul English has created a handy list of scores of company phone numbers along with the quickest way to get a human on the line.

If Paul's tricks don't work for you, you can always just mash the touch pad.

(Hat tip to the lovely Mrs. T.)

HA! I heard about this guy on NPR, but here's the secret I already knew: just keep punching "0" and pretty soon, you'll get to a real live human bean!

NPR? What are you, some kind of librul?

Thanks for the "0" tip. That'll come in handy when I'm too drunk to deal with instructions. Which is most of the time.
