The Lyrics

Jeff Rueben put this song in my head. It is weird, so the parody is weird.
She's hanging up another line
And playing with another head
Routing wrong calls, boy, she has balls
She speaks in techno languages
Works for Bell, her life is hell, boss is an ass
Heaven's no help when you call

Ernestine, was a joy
You get more aid from a meter maid or a paperboy
Telephones and LATA zones
When you inquire numbers like fire, get put on hold

Info on recordings and buttons to press
Now resentment is a common dance
No more "information", you might as well guess

It's all we get
She's a rude operator
SBC, Sprint, ATT, lines can fail
Across the giant grid, to Verizon, send more mail

SBC, Sprint, ATT, lines can fail
Across the giant grid, to Verizon, send more mail

Face to face, there's no more space
The fax machine, computer screen
We need some help!

We used to just call, and get a nice voice
Exchange a few pleasantries, no muzak or noise
Now you get adverts, but really no choice

It's all we get
He's a rude operator
Rude operator
Rude operator
Rude operator

SBC, Sprint, MCI, lines can fail
Across the giant grid, to damn Comcast, send more mail
SBC, Sprint, ATT, lines can fail

Rude operator
Rude operator
Rude operator............

I couldn't follow it very well, but it was funny. 4-5-5.

Despite some of the tech talk, it was quite funny...

Rick - I will NEVER forget the go-around I had with ComCast when I cancelled my Cable. They assessed a LATE charge on a NEGATIVE balance bill and three different Reps REFUSED to discuss it with me. One transferred me to a nice lady who seemed to want to help me but she was in PHONE billing and did not have CABLE records. I finally complained to the local Cable Regulatory people. Surprisingly, one call got me transferred to a lady who looked into it and got someone higher in Comcast to call me. We discussed it and I got the charge reversed. I was mighty glad to have some of that "bad government regulation" and that "faceless bureaucrat" around when dealing with that bunch or stupid, arrogant, clueless jerks at Comcast. I've resisted the temptation to get cable again even though I'd like to see some of the NBA play-offs. I'll never use Comcast for anything again.

When the other option is SBC, sometimes you go with the lesser of two Weevils. They're both big bugs.
