Call centres that are based in India! They talk so fast you can't understand them!

They are lovely people in the Indian call centres but sometimes it can be easier to explain what you need when speaking to a British person.

Surely the technology exists for you to phone a call centre, then when you are hit with a queue, it reads a message: "You are in a queue, please hang up and we will call you back when an assistant is ready" or something to that effect. That would be far less frustrating.

BT have to be the worse!! You have to wait for ages on hold and then if you have issues with your broadband they just don't seem capable of being of any help at all? The banks are also terrible, I just wish some of their directors would try and be a customer for an hour incognito and see what appalling service they offer!
