    Do you ever wonder how to get hold of certain big companies? They're all over the internet, but no phone numbers?

    Check this out.

    On a similar note, this is a cool website... http://www.gethuman.com/us/ - It lists how to bypass the automated systems you get when you call for customer service!

    My least favorite is SBC... It has one of those voice activated systems that asks you a series of specific questions and if you don't know how to answer them right, you get stuck in a loop and have to call back to start over. I feel like I'm in one of those "choose your own adventure" books. It has one of the funniest work-arounds: "When asked to state reason for calling, hit many numbers quickly." LOL!

    My worst is Columbia House (dvds). There's just no way to get through (they're not on the gethuman site, but I have found a couple of others on there.) I've even called their main office and talked to security (they were closed). They also don't answer emails or faxes.
