Which Customer Service Cliches Most Get On Your Nerves?

We all have customer service horror stories, and so many of them involve customer service reps repeating the same old irritating bromides.

There’s the tried-and-true “I’m sorry, but I can’t make that change in the system,” to the classic buck-passer, “I can pass you on to a manager, but she’s just going to tell you the same thing.”

And of course all customer service reps “understand your problem” and are “very sorry to hear that you’re unhappy.”

So here’s your chance to vent about those tired phrases you could go the rest of your life without ever having to hear while trying to resolve a bill, track a package, get a refund or prove that you’re not dead.
