I am disabled. When I tell The Automated Operator "Agent", Why do they insist on the Assistant?

I am a disabled customer, I do not use TV. Only the Internet. For the last 20 years I have predominatly asked for an agent to help solve my issues, not only because of limitations due to my disability; but sometimes due to creative needs of working within the beurocracy that is Comcast. Sometimes the Beurocracy is Social Security.

 

But forget 20 Years, I the customer, as a customer, 30 seconds of being with your company should be enough to KNOW WHAT I NEED to get the job done for me. And what level of assistance. I was told by an agent recently, to just punch a couple of the options on the assistant enough to register, then call again and say agent until it connects me!  So I call once, ask for an agent, get told "I really don't need one, I think you need a text based solution". (Never asks if you are partially sighted) . Then you have to answer a couple of questions, "just punch them in there". Finally call back again, and shout "Agent!" another 10 Times, so that you are GOOD AND ANGRY! WHEN YOU DO GET A HUMAN! How is this even productive.

I am sure that your entire staff is getting PTSD now from the anger of the people, which could be avoided just by letting them talk to whom that want to.
