When the putter won't work
To get you on to the net.
You call customer service
To get the darn thing reset.

Some one will usually answer
And say they can help you.
I think thats what he said
But I really  don't have a clue.

He's from some foreign land
Probably working for just a little
But I'm already very frustrated
And with no patience to fiddle.

We've both now got an attitude
And we're not talking very nice
While he tries his best to help
I tell him to be more precise.

I've made it quite plain to him
That he probably can't fix
The problems I have here
He's probably just a hick

Well he kind of snickers
And said you called me
I don't have the problem
I'm not the one up a tree

This soothes my agitated
Mind, enough to continue
He says click on START
And read me the menu

Well we get through it
My frustration has past
My puter is working
I'm on the net at last.

I smile and thank him
And he responds to me then
He's happy to help me
What a pleasure it's been

After I'd hung up the phone
I began clearly to see
I was already prejudiced
For he didn't sound like me

I'm angry cause he's taking
A job away from the USA
And I couldn't see his side
He's just working for the pay.

The next time I call them
From politics I'll refrain
Because all of this hatred
Is too much of a drain.

Katy really nailed it here!  

After I'd hung up the phone
I began clearly to see
I was already prejudiced
For he didn't sound like me

If you start out with dislike it's that much harder to "hear" what the other person is saying.  

The overseas techs are hard to understand sometimes but if you ask them to repeat what they said they don't seem to mind and really try extra hard to be clear.  And yes, they are just trying to make an honest living.
