I had occasion to try and ring my bank this morning but couldn't get past the automated voice telling me to press 1 for this or 2 for that etc. As my broadband was down I couldn't search the internet for alternative landline numbers - eventually I paid a visit to my bank in the High Street who sorted my problem out, but this is the interesting bit Image The bank clerk who helped me told me that when the automated voice starts telling you the options to speak the word 'advisor' and you will bypass all that rigmarole and get straight through to a real, live person Image

My bank - the Listening one from Westminster! - gives out business cards at the counter, with the name of the bank teller on them plus the actual number of the branch of bank. It's true. ... No need to call the general automated service.
Either the hash key or the zero sometimes gets us beyond the options too.. automated systems probably have ability to recognise eedjiots or frustrated customers perhaps? I don't know.
talking of phone numbers in general..... Stay alert. Numbers can be rented/purchased which can mean we can be duped into wrongly thinking it is a UK area code c/w standard charge.
I use this site a lot. Works for a lot of 08.... numbers.
