    Trim : SXi

    Engine : 2.2


    Default

    My missus works for a well known insurance company and recites a story of a call that did the rounds within this company and it goes like this

    Caller Hello my husband passed away recently and I would like to start the process of claiming on the life insurance
    Indian woman Is the policy in your name?
    Caller No it was in my husbands name but I am his wife
    IW I need to speak to your husband as it is his policy
    C That is impossible as he has passed away
    IW Ok I understand but I can only speak to him about the policy
    C He is dead
    IW I understand but I still can only speak to him
    C He is dead, passed away no longer lives so I am the person taking this up as per the will
    IW Yes I understand but if it is only in your husbands name we can only speak to him

    It continues like this as the woman gets upset but the problem is the call centre have a fixed speech to stick to. They use this call as well as many others for training but yours did make me laugh!

    That's the problem with Indian call centres. They can't deviate from the script in front of them, does my tits in because it removes all semblance of common sense.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : lots !

    Default

    I went on the offensive with a call centre one.

    Had a leaflet through the door saying 'ask us to supply your gas and electricity and we'll give you 2000 Tesco Club Card points'

    Call went something like this:

    Me: Hello - I'd like to take you upon your Clubcard points offer.

    Centre: - Certainly Sir. Who is your current electricity supplier ?

    Me: - EON

    Centre: - and your gas ?

    Me: - I don't have any

    Centre: - Would you like us to supply it ?

    Me: - Yes please. But you'll have to install a gas main to the village first. Can I have my 2000 points now please.

    Hello..................
