From the Your Opinion section in Friday’s Journal Sentinel:
Answer the phone
I'm all for President Barack Obama's program to create jobs for Americans.
We can start by hiring people to answer the telephones of businesses so the caller can talk to a live person, rather than dialing a long list of menus and options - which is irritating and frustrating and a waste of time - while listening to terrible, loud music, causing further irritation, and in the end, not being able to resolve the problem.
Let's put people to work right now! A live person is better than a dozen menus and computers.
