Therein lies the problem with this country....give all the jobs away to foreigners. Especially when it's given to India, where they SHOULD be REQUIRED to be able to speak English FLUENTLY and in a manner that can actually be understood, but unfortunately have absolutely NO IDEA whatsoever how to speak English, pretty much THE most simple and basic human language on the entire fucking planet.

English is absolutely not the easiest language on the planet. There are people born in America that can't even speak it well. I think it's probably easy to speak very poorly, but really tough to know well.

Its a bastardized language with pieces of the Romance laguages as well as the old Anglo Saxon languages.

Other than that, I agree 100% with the theme of this thread.

I wholeheartedly agree ... or is it holeheartedly? And let's not forget the silly I before E except after C or when sounding like A as in Neighborly Way

As far as outsourcing, it does suck and while it may save the company a few bucks it has to be costing them as well in the form of customers. Each time I speak with someone from India, I ask to be switched to an American call center. I'm finding that a lot of companies must be listening to their customers' complaints because I'm speaking to more and more Americans. Sprint's customer service people actually identify the call center they're in i.e. Dallas, Charlotte etc. I had to call Toshiba several times about what turned out to be a setting on my new laptop and each time I called, I spoke with people in Houston (I think). I always tell Americans that it's a pleasure speaking to an American

Just figured I'd point out it's "Neigbor or weigh," thus giving 2 examples of the exception. :action-sm

As others have said English isn't one of the easiest languages to learn.

Plus, we don't even require people to speak English here.

I used to work for a small little mom & pop company called General Electric.

The tech service for GE's medical equipment was excellent... you had a question, you called and immediately got an English-speaking tech. who was located in Jupiter Florida who knew his shit, and talked you through whatever trouble you were having about 90% of the time.

Then GE decided to outsource everything to India. So... instead of calling Florida and getting 1 of 20 competent, qualified English-speaking tech service guys on the line, you instead had to call India, get some unintelligible clueless savage on the phone named "Ricky", waste twenty minutes going in circles as "Ricky" tried to follow some worthless troubleshooting flow chart... which NEVER worked, finally, when you got so frustrated that you threatened to fly to India and punch "Ricky" in his cinnamon lips, he'd finally "escalate" the call to the next level... they'd transfer you to 1 0f 2 competent, qualified tech service guys left in Jupiter Florida... who talked you through whatever trouble you were having about 90% of the time... but only after you had wasted 20 minutes with "Ricky" and waited another 10 minutes on hold waiting to speak to 1 of the 2 guys left in Jupiter who weren't laid off when they outsourced..

A couple of years later, we all went to a GE corporate Rah-Rah session meeting and some stuffed suit got up in front of everybody and bragged about what a wonderful success the newly revamped, turbo charged and streamlined Tech Service Support System was! "Sure, it was a little rocky at first, but we got the kinks ironed out, and now it's running like a Swiss watch! Our tracking and trending indicates that the average call duration to tech service is down to five minutes! Before the revamp the average call duration was over fifteen minutes! Calls are being handled three times faster now!

Like twenty field techs raised their hands, they pointed to one, and he said, "Uh, the reason the calls are down to five minutes is because if we call and they refuse to escalate us and transfer us to Jupiter immediately, we just hang up. We don't even bother trying to deal with India... it's nothing but a waste of time."

The heads of a hundred field service techs nodded in agreement, and the corporate suitload replied... "Okay! Great job everybody on making the new Tech Service Support System such a smashing success!"

Fucking corporate drones.
