So I'm an a-hole...when you can't understand me and i can't understand you
I just tried to order a damned pizza.
I gave my address 4 times spelling it out with the usual D as in Delta, A as in Alfa...whatevs. Child of a HAM radio operator, I know how to talk it. I did it FOUR TIMES and they still didn't get it so I just said no thanks.
I never got to the point of ordering a freaking pizza.
It is tremendously frustrating to me that I have to learn another language just to get service around here.
I am normally very kind and patient. But it's a pizza. FFS, how hard does it have to be? Why do businesses hire people to answer the phones and take orders when they cannot speak English in the US?
I am feeling like an a-hole for being mad but on the other hand, I'm pissed because I am normally good about this and even so, this person on the other end of the line cannot understand me.
