Have any of you tried to call an 0845 number recently? I’ve tried half a dozen times today and not been able to get through. Seems that there is a timer on the system set by a 14 year old gamer, so that if you hesitate just a fraction the number isn’t recognised. 

OK I’m nearly 65, but I don’t have arthritis, and I’m not senile… SO WHY DO THEY MAKE IT SO DAMNED DIFFICULT TO USE THE PHONE?

Problem is, I’ve been trying to call my credit card provider, and guess what, you have to type in your 16 digit number…And guess what…That 14 year old works for them too! 6 times I’ve tried, and can’t get through.

This is ageism!!!!!
