    I hate that you have to go through 15 different menus, solve a sudoko and know the secret handshake before you can even get to one of those mid-Eastern Asian operators!

    Just remember not to be a jerk to the guy on the other end of the line. He's not the one who moved the call center to Pakistan to save a few bucks.

    What's that Pakistani guy supposed to say when he sees the want ad in his local paper? "Oh, no! I'd never work for that company. The C.E.O. is a scumbag who fired the American workers so he could give himself a bigger year-end bonus! I'll just keep my job making $1.25 a day selling dried cow chips for fertilizer. I'd never work in that air-conditioned office."
    I don't think so.

    Anyway, give the operator a break.

    Credit cards are evil. Pay them off, close the accounts, and never get one again.

    Absolutely. I don't have a credit card, and don't ever plan on getting one. Spending money I don't have doesn't sound like such a good idea to me.

    A UK company recently put in it's adverts that all it's call centres were now UK based. For all the extra expense, it shows what their market research was telling them - people get tired after saying "pardon?" more than ten times a minute.

    I have to agree totally with Bullwinkle though; it is not the operators' fault - I bet they get some serious shit from less than intelligent callers. I always tried to be polite.

    Now, living in Germany, I see the other side of things. I'm the dumb shit immigrant calling my internet helpline with less than adequate german language skills. I find computer problems difficult enough over the phone in English - I'm sure the operator thought I was either an idiot or just pure comedy. I must have said "can you say that more slowly please?" a thousand times.

    Best idea is to laugh about the whole thing.

    Try canceling a card even if you have zero balance. They bounce you around to about 4 people. Then they try to threaten you and finally you have to just curse them out.

    That reminds me of David Sedaris' story about living in Paris.
    He would try to explain to his friends over there that he was an intelligent human being with a good education, and that, once he mastered the French language, they would be amazed at his intelligence and wit.
    Unfortunately, due to his bad French, this would come out as: "Me talk pretty one day."

    credit cards are fantastic if they are used properly. In the 17 years I've had one I haven't paid one cent in interest or in fees. If used with some sort of intelligence they are a fantastic creation. I get cheaper gas because of a credit card, I get all sorts of different loyalty bonuses because of a credit card, and all with no cost to me. Don't know why anyone with any common sense and self control wouldn't want to use them.

    They aren't gift cards, it's your money - if you can't afford to pay cash then don't use your credit card to buy it. It's just better then having to walk around with hundreds of dollars in cash everytime you go shopping. It's also better then using your bank card due to the many benefits a credit card gives you.

    That sounds about right for my life. I've lived in a few countries where I have had the opportunity to mangle their languages and you're right; when you have only a basic command you just come off as stupid.

    However, better to just appear stupid than to say something downright rude by mistake.

    Me, in a Polish butchers about 6 years ago, getting the word for chicken confused with something else ........

    "Dzien dobry. prosze pani ma kurwa?"

    roughly translates as .......

    "Good afternoon. Do you have a whore please?"

    Not the most comfortable moment when i realised, prompted by the ladies skywards eyebrows, what i had said.

    When it comes to languages, I give everybody a little slack.

    They seem like a great bank, if there is such a thing. I recently opened an online savings account with them which is linked to my normal checking account. They are giving one of the best savings account interest rates and generally get high marks from other customers. They are currently at 2.80% with no minimum balance, down from 3.25% not too long ago (all of them are going down). Still, it's a hell of a lot better than the 0.25% at my credit union.
