"I tried to initiate an online chat. That didn't go anywhere."

"Now I'm on hold. It's my second time calling...right now it's just repeating the same recorded message over and over again."

"We started about 35 minutes ago, so at this point, I'm going to hang up and call it a day. If I were signing up for myself, this is where my patience would be exhausted."
