A cubicle farm usually in India which you call up (which SHOULD be tech. support...) and they always put you on hold.
But once you get through, the person on the other end is nice enough, but hard to understand.
I wanted to get to Intel's customer care line, but got a call centre in India instead.
Call Centres are a public relations disaster waiting to happen.
Gone are the days when you can talk to someone you can understand, now you are forced into GUESSING what the person on the other end of the line is saying.
Extremely frustrating when your problem is one of urgency.
